Rachel Samson will represent CCSC in the Junior High Honor Choir conducted by Jeffrey Ames, Director of Choral Activities at Belmont University, Tennessee.

    Jaclyn Plate and Madison Zahorsky will represent CCSC in the High School Honor Choir conducted by Jo-Michael Scheibe, who is the Director of Choral Activities at the Thornton School of Music at the University of Southern California and also serves as the National President of the American Choral Directors Association.

    It is an honor to be selected to participate in these honor choirs and have the opportunity to work with internationally recognized choral conductors.
