MOUNT PLEASANT, N.Y. -- Westlake High School senior Rebecca Poole was named to the 2015 New York State School Music Association All-State Symphonic Band. An accomplished clarinetist, Poole is among the approximately 900 highly talented high school music and choral students who earned the “master proficiency” distinction based on their scores at the association's festival last spring.

More than 6,500 sophomores and junior prepared  solos for the festival and only the top 2,400 with scores of 98-100 were considered. Poole scored a perfect 100.

Poole, who began playing the clarinet in the fourth grade at Columbus Elementary School, has been chosen to the Westchester All-County band every year since eighth grade. She is a first chair clarinetist in Westlake’s concert band and plays lead alto saxophone in the jazz band. In addition, she has performed as a member of the pit orchestra for many high school musicals. She also is a member of the Westchester Youth Symphony Orchestra and the Youth Wind Ensemble of Westchester.

On Dec. 6, Poole will represent Westlake and perform with the All-State Symphonic Band in the Eastman Theater in Rochester during the New York State School Music Association's winter conference.
