Archmere Mastersingers Perform at Carnegie Hall

On March 15, 2015, Archmere Academy’s award-winning choir, the Mastersingers, took the stage at the famed Carnegie Hall to perform as part of the National Youth Choir. The Mastersingers performed a solo concert, in addition to performing as part of the National Youth Choir, under the direction of Dr. Timothy Seelig, the Grammy award-winning conductor of Turtle Creek Chorale. 

The National Youth Choir is made up of 7-10 choirs from across the country who were invited to send in audition material before being chosen to participate. In order to be considered for the honor of featured solo choir, groups were also invited to send in recordings of their groups from 2010 through present day. After submitting the required audition materials, the Archmere Academy Mastersingers were selected as the only solo featured choir. They performed a 30-40 minute concert prior to the National Youth Choir's performance. This was the second time the choir has earned this honor, the first was in April of 2013.  The Archmere Mastersingers are only the 2nd choir in the history of the Festival to achieve a repeat solo concert performance as the featured solo choir.

In the National Youth Choir segment of the concert there were eleven soloists that were chosen through audition; eight of the eleven were Archmere Mastersingers. They were: Rebecca McBride '16, Emma Stovicek '17, Sarah Burton '17, Naa Attoh-Okine '15, Anne Malangyaoun '16, Keelin Reilly '17, Caroline Quinn '17, and Claire Caverly '15.
