Seven students from San Marino High School recently performed with over 400 singers in one of four choirs in the California Choral Directors Association, All-State High School Honor Choir in San Jose.
Singers were chosen based on music theory and vocal evaluation, and took the stage with other students from around the state of California under the direction of nationally and internationally known conductors.
Students had the opportunity to audition in September and were chosen based on their vocal quality and technique, music theory, tonal memory and sight singing. Twelve from SMHS were chosen, and performed at the University of Redlands in November. Of those twelve, seven were chosen to attend the All-State Honor Choir based on their audition scores at San Jose State University from March 14-16. The three days culminated with performances on Saturday, March 16 at St. Joseph’s Cathedral in San Jose.
The seven San Marino High School students chosen for the Honor Choir are Justin Chen, Michelle Zhang, Jennifer Zhang, Stanley Wong, Joe Hindle, Hunter Modean and Holden Kenney. Modean and Wong are members of the school’s Concert Choir and the others are members of the Chamber Choir.
