Coral Reef chorus students chosen for All-State Chorus

 

Community Newspapers

Nineteen Coral Reef Senior High School chorus students have competed and have been selected as members of the 2012 Florida All-State Chorus.

Coral Reef High chorus students are members of the Visual and Performing Arts Magnet Program under the direction of John Rose. The Florida Music Educators Association evaluates students from throughout the state and each student was evaluated on his or her mastery of music theory and sight reading, as well as vocal ability.

They will work with nationally known clinicians and perform with the best singers in the state during the January 2012 Florida Music Educators Association’s All-State conference in Tampa. In addition, 12 students from Coral Reef High School were placed in the top 100 sight-readers in Florida and were selected for the elite Reading Chorus, more than any other high school in the state.
