NCA Choirs End School Year On A High Note
One of the many marks of an excellent educational institution is having a high quality arts program. Here at NCA, we are not only honored to have excellent academics, but we are also thrilled to share that we have an excellent arts program. Recently, our choirs received some impressive recognition – and we are incredibly grateful to end the school year with such wonderful accolades!
Our very own NCA Choirs were honored to have students selected to the North Carolina All State Chorus for the third consecutive year in the middle school division and for the first time in the history of our school in the high school division. These selected students worked outside of school on multiple challenging pieces in diverse languages, and then traveled across the state to rehearse the songs with the top singers from other schools and nationally-renowned directors. The students culminated their experience with a middle school performance in Greensboro, NC on April 22 and a high school performance in Raleigh on May 6. We’d like to announce a big congratulations to the following students:
Lizzyjen Jackson (6th Grade Chorus)Christopher Walford (6th Grade Chorus)La’Nayah Miller (07-08 SSAA Chorus)Ty Morgan (07-08 SATB Chorus)David Jackson (09-10 SATB Chorus)Elizabeth Walford (09-10 SATB Chorus)Jay Lee (11-12 SATB Chorus)Tre Washington (11-12 SATB Chorus)Mikaela Gulledge (09-12 SSAA Chorus)Sanaa McClendon (09-12 SSAA Chorus)Elijah Fitchue (09-12 TTBB Chorus)Jin Hong (09-12 TTBB Chorus)William Walford (09-12 TTBB Chorus)
Students were coached by NCA Choral Director, Mr. Taylor Nelson (’09), and assisted by NCA Band Director, Ms. Bethany Broesder, and NCA Fine Arts Director, Mrs. Susan Renstrom (’73).
Please join us in congratulating these incredible students on their extremely high honors! We are proud of both our arts staff and our students – and we thank God for His generous gifts of talent to this department!
