SARATOGA SPRINGS — Seven students from Fulton County were selected to participate in the New York State School Music Association’s Zone 7 Area All-State Festival.

The festival took place at Saratoga Springs High School on Saturday, Nov. 17. The students practiced with other area students in the morning, and the festival ended with a concert at 2 p.m.

The groups consisted of top music students from Hamilton, Warren, Washington, Rensselaer, Albany, Schenectady, Saratoga, Montgomery and Fulton counties. To be considered for selection in the Area All-State ensembles, students had to score very highly at the NYSSMA solo festival this past spring followed by an application process.
