Goshen High School student-musician Isabel Dooley was selected to perform with the High School Honors Concert Band at Carnegie Hall in Manhattan on February 2, 2020.

Isabel, a junior, will perform with an ensemble on alto saxophone. She will meet and rehearse with other students from around the world, culminating in the concert performance.

In order to earn this coveted honor, Isabel had to perfect, perform, and record a level 6 NYSSMA solo, which she submitted with an application last June.
