Four Honesdale High School students participated in the Region Chorus Festival at the Canton Area High School, March 20-22, 2019. Maggie Murphy, Ella Sherman, Andrew Buckwalter, and Miguel Salvador advanced from the District 9 Chorus Festival at Lakeland High School in February to this regional event. These students auditioned against stiff competition and were accepted into the choir comprised of 160 students from across our region.
Miguel, a senior at HHS, plans to attend Point Park University in the fall to major in photography. He recently played the debonair Lumiere in the HHS musical, Beauty and the Beast. Maggie, starring in the lead role of Belle, is a junior.
She has plans to pursue a major related to math and science after high school, but still wants to stay very involved with music. Andrew, also a junior, joined the musical cast as Lefou, and he hopes to become a music teacher or a history professor someday. Ella, who is a sophomore, played a variety of female parts in Beauty and the Beast. She takes great pride in helping with the music for a local Vacation Bible School program in the summer. Ella hopes to go to college to study music education.
All four of these students participate in chorus and the chamber choir at HHS. Maggie, Andrew, and Ella are also members of the school band and wind ensemble. All four students performed brilliantly, representing Honesdale High School superbly at the Region Chorus Festival.
