C-NS Honor Choir Performs at Carnegie HallSixteen students from Cicero-North Syracuse High School were selected to perform with the National Youth Choir at Carnegie Hall on April 7, 2019. Over 300 students from as far away as Puerto Rico, Canada, and California all gathered in New York City to work under the direction of internationally recognized choral conductor Dr. Eph Ehly.
The students prepared six choral selections for performance. While in New York, C-NS students also attended the Broadway production of ‘Mean Girls’; toured midtown Manhattan to see such sights as Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Plaza, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Grand Central Station, the New York Public Library, and the Macy’s Flower Festival; and visited the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
The students selected to perform include: Brianna Ballard, Christian Bourdon, Teagan Brown, Kaden Chappell, Kaitlynn Fiorentino, Tyler Gibbens, Presley Gilbo, Daniel Greninger, Joshua Merchant, Ashley Palamar, Austin Raabe, Natalie Romano, Jenna Sherry, Bianca Stevenson, Joshua Wilk, and Ashley Williams. Of special note: one of the choral selections featured a vocal solo. More than 75 students auditioned and Ashley Williams, from C-NS, was selected to sing the solo at Carnegie Hall.
