Three South Seneca students selected for Area All-State Chorus

South Seneca Middle High School is honored to have had three singers selected to attend this year’s Senior High Area All-State, which took place at Ithaca High School over the weekend of February 2 and 3.

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 currently in grades 10 through 12. They apply with their NYSSMA (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 who are selected worked with a guest conductor over the period of a day and half and presented the music they worked on at a concert Saturday, February 3.
