Congratulations to Anise Dorsey and Abby Brown on being selected for the Virginia Senior Honors Choir!. Anise and Abby auditioned for this ensemble at Longwood College. They prepared and auditioned a complete Baroque solo vocal selection, as well as sight-read a musical example for 2 adjudicators. Both students will travel to the Virginia Music Educators Conference in Norfolk on November 19-21, and will have the opportunity to rehearse and perform challenging choral repertoire with a university conductor as part of the VA Senior Honors Choir. Students who participate in these types of honors ensembles bring back tremendous musical acumen to their peers at their home school music programs, and we are very proud of Anise and Abby for their leadership. This is the first time Wakefield has had 2 representatives in this ensemble. Go Warriors!!
