Last April, the Shorecrest High School Viva Voce Chorale entered a Heritage Music Festival that was held in Auburn. We received a “Gold” Rating. Which meant that according to National Standards, our choir met the gold standard (gold, silver, bronze).

The festival was ranked as well. The SC Viva Voce Chorale received the highest scores in our division so we received 1st place. Receiving both a gold and a 1st place qualified us to sing as members of the 2017 National Youth Choir in New York.

63 students from the Viva Voce Chorale, the Treble Choir and the Chansons Vocal Ensemble will travel to NYC to sing on the Stern Auditorium Perelman stage in Carnegie Hall with other Choirs from across the nation. We will sing with choirs from Arizona, Rhode Island, Florida, Nevada and Puerto Rico.

Our performance will be on Sunday, April 2nd.

While in NYC we will have the opportunity to visit Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as many of the historic sites in the city. We will also see a Broadway Musical.
