Eleven vocal students selected for Choral Festival

A chorus is seenEleven Schoharie vocal students were chosen to join about 150 students from more than 20 schools in the Capital Region to participate in the 23rd Annual Albany Pro Musica High School Choral Festival on Saturday, Jan. 21.

Students rehearsed, participated in a vocal workshop and enjoyed lunch on UAlbany campus. The event culminated with a concert in the evening, featuring Albany Pro Musica, the festival’s Honor Choir and the High School Choral Festival Choir. 

This year students were fortunate to work under the direction of UAlbany professor Dr. Michael Lister. Students prepared music with messages about the importance of building community and self-improvement. All of their selections were composed by living composers from North America and they featured texts from Langston Hughes and Emily Dickinson, just to name a few.

Congratulations to our student musicians for being part of this wonderful event!
