Vocalist Selected to All State Chorus

Whitinsville Christian High School is pleased to announce Sarah Jarosz, vocalist, has been selected to participate in the 2015 Massachusetts Music Educators Association’s 60th All-State Music Festival, which will be held March 19-21 in Boston.  Sarah, a junior, is the daughter of Ms. Lynn Jarosz of Douglas.

         The Massachusetts Music Educators Association sponsors the music festival, and participation gives students an opportunity to demonstrate their artistry and create new friendships. Sarah was required to audition in late-January to qualify for her spot. She was judged based on technical abilities and musicality in singing a prepared piece of music and selected scales, as well as in sight-reading.
