The students are selected from a pool of hundreds of applicants from districts across Zone 9, which encompasses Green, Orange, Rockland, Sullivan and Ulster County.

The students are currently preparing for the festival with their school music teachers, and will participate in a series of rehearsals that culminate in concerts during the weekend of Mar. 9.
