Elite Student Musicians Selected to All-State Band

Rudy Brandl

Congratulations to Luke Tan ’24 and Joanne Ding ’24, who earned the opportunity to perform with the New Jersey All-State Band. The W+H students, two of the school’s most elite musicians, auditioned for the All-State High School Bands and Orchestra at J.P. Stevens High School in Edison on Jan. 20.

Luke was accepted into the Wind Ensemble on Battery Percussion and Joanne was accepted into the Wind Ensemble on flute.  Only students who were selected into this year's three New Jersey region ensembles were qualified to audition for All-State, so only the best of the best young musicians are accepted into New Jersey All-State ensembles. Furthermore, students who placed in the Wind Ensemble received the highest audition scores on their instruments.

Luke and Joanne will perform at the Atlantic City Convention Center on February 23 and the NJPAC on February 24. For NJPAC ticket information, call 1-800-go-njpac or visit
