Meet Malverne High’s top musicians


Two student-musicians from Malverne High School’s chorus performed in the 2018 New York State School Music Association’s All-State Chorus held in Rochester from Nov. 29-Dec. 2.

The district congratulated Oluwaseun Ajirotutu and Malachi Thomas who was selected from the thousands who auditioned. In order to be considered for All-State, they had to receive a score of 98 or higher on a Level 6 NYSSMA solo last spring, and also had to be ranked number one at that particular site. They performed at the Kodak Theatre at the Eastman School of Music. Thomas has also been selected for the All-Eastern Honors Choir.
