OVID — Three South Seneca Middle High School singers were selected to attend this year’s Senior High Area All-State, which took place Feb. 2 and 3 at Ithaca High School.
Junior Sarah Corning was selected for Mixed Chorus as an Alto II. Senior Julia Diamond and Junior Madelyn Houck were selected to sing in the Treble Choir as Soprano II and Soprano I, respectively.
Applicants for Senior High Area All-State are in grades 10 through 12. They apply with their New York State School Music Association Solo Festival score from the previous year and a teacher recommendation. Applicants are from NYSSMA’s Zone 3, which goes from South Seneca to near Binghamton and near Syracuse. Applicants with the highest scores and levels are chosen to fill a limited number of seats in the two choruses.
Students worked with a guest conductor over the period of a day and half and presented the music they worked on at a concert Saturday, Feb. 3.
