Four Cascia students were selected for the Carnegie Hall Honors Performance Series. Two of those students were also selected for the Sydney Opera House Honors Performance Series.
Four Cascia students performed at Carnegie Hall as part of the Carnegie Hall Honors Performance Series. High school students from around the world auditioned to be a part of this prestigious event. Students sent in recorded audition material during the summer demonstrating their musical abilities in their chosen field. Those selected were given the honor of performing in an honors group on the famed Carnegie Hall stage in New York City in February, 2019.
Cascia has a tradition of sending talented students to this event, and this year was no exception. Travis Guillory and Joseph Barbour were both selected as members of the men’s Carnegie Hall Honors Concert Choir, Camryn Hurley was selected as a member of the Carnegie Hall Honors Women's Choir, and Margaret Barbour was selected as a violinist in the Carnegie Hall Honors Orchestra. Travis was chosen for a solo part in the men’s performance choir.
Margaret and Camryn were also selected to participate in the Sydney Opera House Performance Series during the summer of 2019. This performance series builds upon the heritage of the Carnegie Hall Series and challenges accomplished 9th – 12th grade musicians at one of the world’s most recognized and revered performance institutions: the Concert Hall at Sydney Opera House.
At both performance series, participating students spend days studying under master conductors, experience the highlights of the city, and get to know accomplished musicians from around the world.
