"We are very proud and honored to be the first ensemble from our school to be invited to perform at Carnegie Hall. To be invited to work with these outstanding clinicians and sing with some of the best choirs in the country is the opportunity of a lifetime and a dream-come-true for our students and their director."
Margaret B. Cook, Director
“We are blessed to have elite choral programs from across the country participating, as well as our all-star lineup of clinicians, adjudicators and workshop presenters; not to mention the exceptional talent we have in Z.
