Our Westfield High School Ape-Men sang for the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) major organization evaluation festival held at Chautauqua Lake High School last month. The students were required to sing a short program of three selections for two NYSSMA certified adjudicators. The group was judged according to standards that mirror New York State’s standards for music education. The group of 26 Westfield High School students received the Gold award, which is the hardest and most prestigious to achieve. Group member and senior, Ethan Perdue responded “It felt great to have such an amazing accomplishment! We met the night before to try to get it together, and it really worked out!” Director Kent Knappenberger stated “This was a testament to some super-hard-working kids. Surviving the pandemic as a music student hasn’t been easy, but they did it and even went above and beyond. I’m really happy that they performed so well and received this recognition. It’s nice to get a second opinion on student success!” Congratulations to these talented Westfield High School students. Their plaque will be proudly hung in the

Eastland High School, in Eastland Texas is home to the 2022 Grammy Music Educator winner, Stephen Cox. #2 Westwinds performed at the festival at Midlothian High School, Midlothian, TX. #3-Our Westwinds ensemble recorded some music (for a future video) at the workplace and set of Netflix show “How to Be a Cowboy”, aka the Dale Brisby Dalewearhouse, in New Castle, TX. You should be able to spot some of the cast in the photo! #4 At Six Flags Themepark, with our trophy, after we found out we received a superior rating, 2nd place in our division, and 6th place over all out of 22 ensembles from 5 states (only one from New York, though!). Esther Knappenberger and Cameron Paternosh received medals for being recognized at the outstanding vocal soloists of the event! #5 Westwinds attended a rodeo at the Cowtown Coliseum in Fort Worth.
Students competed in the Soap Box Derby on Saturday in Jamestown as a finale to their work with Mr. Martin. Grayson Mazza drove the derby car supported by the crew of Tahner Stow and Tyrick Nadi. Westfield's crew won 3 of 6 phases and finished the day with a STEM race against other school teams in the area. It was a great day working with Dream it Do it of WNY. We hope to add another car to the race next year!
