HOLLEY – About 650 people packed the Holley High School Auditorium this afternoon for the 2014 Orleans All-County Music Festival.

Today’s concert included the top elementary student singers, the best in the middle school band programs, and the leading singers in the high school choruses for the five school districts – Albion, Holley, Kendall, Lyndonville and Medina.

This is the 60th anniversary of the Orleans County Music Educators Association. Carrie Kozody, a middle school chorus teacher at Albion, is the group’s current president.
