Sarah Pasquale - All State Treble Chorus
Sarah Pasquale '21 (Alto I) performed this past Sunday, February 23, with the New Jersey All State Treble Chorus. Last week, Sarah joined 144 other New Jersey high school students from around the state to work on challenging choral literature under the direction of Ms. Nicole Snodgrass, Choral Director at Cherokee High School.
Rehearsals were held over several days at the NJMEA (NJ Music Educators Association) Conference in Atlantic City, and culminated in a performance at NJPAC in Newark on Sunday. Sarah's favorite selection was "There Will Come Soft Rains" (SSAA), by Kevin A. Memley, a piece inspired by a poem written by American poet Sarah Teasdale, first published in 1918.
This was Sarah's first year with All State Chorus, but she intends to continue seeking advanced choral opportunities outside of school and plans to audition this March for next year's All State Chorus! We wish her the best as she continues to explore more advanced choral experiences and look forward to her representing Ranney School performing arts in the future. Brava!
