Applauding Wicomico Students Selected for 2019 All Shore Chorus, All State Chorus

Congratulations to the outstanding 2019 All Shore Senior and Junior Chorus and All State Senior Chorus singers from Wicomico County Public Schools. High school students will participate in a half day of All Shore rehearsal April 11, then middle and high school singers will have a full day of rehearsal April 12 capped off by a 7 p.m. concert at Wicomico High School Auditorium.

Middle and high school students from throughout the Eastern Shore auditioned for All Shore Chorus. Thirty-three Wicomico students were selected for 2019 All Shore Chorus.

Wicomico County also has two singers selected by audition to the prestigious All State Chorus ensembles: Zoe Michelle Bradshaw (Soprano I) of Mardela High, and Laila Libertin (Tenor) of Parkside High and the Wicomico County Visual and Performing Arts Program. Along with other top vocalists from across the state, Zoe participated in the All State Senior Treble Chorus and Laila participated in the All State Senior Mixed Chorus during the Maryland Music Educators Association conference.

The success of these All Shore and All State Chorus students highlights the high level of music education in Wicomico County Public Schools, with Wicomico students excelling in All Shore and All State ensembles. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Donna C. Hanlin and the Board of Education are very proud that Wicomico County Public Schools has been named one of the Best Communities for Music Education in the NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) Foundation Survey. Wicomico has earned this honor nine of the past 12 years due to its excellent music educators and music instruction programs.
