GHS senior Audrey Sherr chosen to perform at Carnegie Hall

Audrey Sherr, a senior at Greenwich High School, has been selected for the 2015 High School Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall.

She will perform as a first soprano at Carnegie Hall in February with the Honors Choir. Participation in one of the three Honors Ensembles is limited to the highest rated high school performers from across North America and select schools internationally.

Audrey auditioned this fall for the Honors Performance Series and was accepted after a review by the Honors Selection Board. Acceptance to the elite group is a direct result of the talent, dedication, and achievements demonstrated in her application and audition recording.  Audrey will join other performers from 49 United States, several provinces in Canada, and several foreign countries for a special performance at world-famous Carnegie Hall, a venue that marks the pinnacle of musical achievement.

“Being selected to the Honors Performance Series is something each Finalist should be extremely proud of accomplishing,” said Morgan Smith, program director. “We process more than ten thousand nominations annually, selecting only the most talented performers applying on an international level. Working with these conductors and performing at Carnegie Hall is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that these student musicians never forget.”

Audrey has studied music for seven years and is a member of the Greenwich High School Concert Choir. She participated in the 2014 CMEA Western Regional Choir, as well as the YMF Voice Festival, where she received a Gold rating in the Classical Voice and Musical Theater categories.

In response to her selection as a finalist, Audrey said, “Music is a large program at Greenwich High, which I must admit is part of what makes it so fun, but also very competitive. I’m absolutely thrilled to have been accepted to the Honors Choir. I can’t wait for the experience to perform at Carnegie Hall!”

Finalists will come together for five days in February in New York City to have the opportunity to learn from conductor Dr. Eph Ehly, work with other Finalists, and get a taste of New York City. The Sunday, Feb. 22, performance is open to the public.

The Honors Performance Series was created to showcase accomplished individual high school performers on an international level by allowing them to study under master conductors and perform in the celebrated venue of Carnegie Hall. To learn more, visit honorsperformance.org and worldstrides.com.
