Albany High's Select Choir takes home the gold -- again

 

ALBANY, N.Y. (May 3, 2012) -- They sang three pieces of extraordinarily challenging music at the most difficult level. And the judges gave their performance a top rating.

 

Led by Director Brendan Hoffman, Albany High School's Select Choir earned a "gold" rating at the New York State School Music Association's Choral Festival May 3 at Bethlehem High School.

 

It's the third gold the ensemble netted in three years, and its first competing at Level VI -- the highest degree of complexity.

 

Not content to rest on their laurels, the Select Choir will perform a May 16 concert with Albany Pro Musica. The free concert, scheduled at 7 p.m. at the Massry Center at The College of Saint Rose, will feature each ensemble performing its own music and a combined set.

 

Members of the select choir are:

Sopranos

Altos

Tenors

Basses

Emily Campbell

Emily Andrews

Hilly Adler

Jahliek Allen

Katelyn Campione

Kelsey Blake
