Two General Brown students recently received recognition from the New York State School Music Association for their outstanding performances and perfect scores on their solos last spring. Collin Vodicka was selected as a bass alternate, and Meganne Brenon was selected to sing soprano in the Conference All State Chorus on Sunday, December 4th. Meganne will be attending many rigorous rehearsals and performing in the concert this weekend over the course of four days in Rochester NY. Congratulations to our fantastic General Brown Lions!
