WESTFIELD - More than 48 students from Westfield Academy and Central School were selected to participate in this year's 63rd Chautauqua All County Music Festival.
The festival was held on Saturday, June 2 at the Chautauqua Institution. Receiving their music several months in advance of the festival, the students worked with their teachers to prepare the music. The students spent the day rehearsing with their respective guest conductors, with the day culminating in an evening concert in front of more than 1,000 people in the Amphitheater. The concert featured five different ensembles, each numbering over 100 members, for a total of over 500 participating students from the music programs of the Chautauqua County school districts.
