18 Homer Junior High students selected to perform at Carnegie Hall
Fundraisers underway to help pay for their trip
Eighteen Homer Junior High School students are headed to New York this summer to perform at Carnegie Hall.
The students, who are all members of the school’s Show Choir, were selected for the honor after being nominated by their choral director, Diane Pullara, and completing an individual audition and selection process.
“I am so proud of these young musicians,” said Pullara. “This is quite an honor. Being able to perform and create music with other students at this elite level is so rewarding. Performing in Carnegie Hall is incredible! This will truly be an experience these young performers with never forget.”
The Middle School Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall showcases the most talented middle school performers from around the world.
Through a choral director nomination, individual audition and selection process, accomplished middle school students are brought together in New York City with peers to comprise the Honors Junior Choir and Honors Junior Instrumental Ensemble.
“Several days of rehearsal under the direction of renowned music conductors culminate in a life-changing performance at Carnegie Hall,” said Pullara. “Carnegie Hall represents excellence in musical performance, making it the perfect venue for the Honors Performance Series to showcase its elite student performers.”
This is not the first time Homer Junior High Show Choir students have been selected to perform at Carnegie Hall. Last year, 14 students were selected to make the trip to New York.
This year’s Middle School Honors Performance Series will be June 22-26, with students performing on the 25th.
To help pay for their trip, the Homer 33C Future Ready Student Foundation is hosting several fundraisers, including an event at Embers Tap House on March 24 in Downtown Lockport.
