Assemblyman Ed Ra (R-Franklin Square) welcomed Angelo Antinori of North Shore School District to Albany earlier this week. Ra met with Antinori, a drummer in this year’s New York All-State Jazz Ensemble, in the Empire State Plaza Concourse. The group kicked off “Music in our Schools Month,” which will feature many local school bands from across the state playing in Albany.
“I am pleased to have had the opportunity to welcome such a talented student to the Capitol,” said Ra. “I wish nothing but the best for Angelo as he further evolves as a musician.”
Participants in the New York All-State Jazz Ensemble are selected by the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA).
