BATAVIA, NY, March 8, 2023— MUSICIANS OF NOTE, a wall of fame to honor past Batavia High School graduates in music, will host its 4th annual ceremony on March 17, 2023 in the Batavia High School auditorium at 7:00 pm.  Nominations were accepted until November, when our committee then selected four talented and deserving recipients.   

Nominees will be recognized with a video presentation.  We will also have High School ensembles perform to celebrate those specific honorees.  A plaque featuring their accomplishments will be displayed on the new Musicians Of Note wall at the High School. 

The 2023 honorees include:

Diana Dipson, 1929
Gloria McLaughlin
, Retired BCSD music teacher 1970-1989
Brian Isaac, 2001
Deanna Spiotta, 2005
Melzie Case, 2012

All five nominees have outstanding resumes.  Since Mark Hoerbelt was ill during the last Musician of Note 2022, we will be having a performance celebrating Mark’s acceptance into Musician of Note last year.

The Musician of Note committee looks forward to receiving nominations for the prestigious honor in the next six months.  You have until the end of October to nominate for the 2024 Musician of Note Ceremony. You may find the application for the Musician of Note on BCSD Website or email
