As part of the district's commemoration of Music in Our Schools Month throughout March, 21 musicians from the high school traveled to Albany and performed on the concourse of the Empire Plaza.

The three high-achieving student-conducted ensembles who attended — The Caprice Chamber Ensemble directed by Marcus Brodsky, Brass Bois Brass Ensemble directed by Myles Carter and Saxophone Quartet directed by Heaven Jenkins — earned the invitation to perform from the New York State School Music Association committee following nominations by their music teachers Jill Boardman and Michael LaSorsa. Each group received an official NYSSMA Plaque to commemorate their performance. Students also expanded their visit to Albany with a guided tour of the State Capitol building, where they visited the Senate and Assembly Chambers and learned about the history of New York State.
