COUNCIL ROCK NORTH STUDENT PERFORMS WITH BEST OF THE BEST AT "ANHE"
During the 2017-18 school year, Madeline Wray from Council Rock High School North practiced with dedication to gain a chair in her district, region, and state music honor ensembles.
And now, Madeline joined the “best of the best” at the National Association for Music Education’s 2018 All-National Honor Ensembles (ANHE) from November 25-28, 2018, at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL.
ANHE performers represent collaboration and creativity in its highest musical form. Students were chosen through an audition process and competed against top competitors for a spot in these national honor ensembles. Selected students rehearsed a challenging repertoire in preparation for performing under the baton of five of the most prominent conductors in the United States: Todd Stoll (Jazz Ensemble); Dr. Amanda Quist (Mixed Choir); Dr. Michael Quantz (Guitar Ensemble); Dr. Jean Montès (Symphony Orchestra); and Dennis Glocke (Concert Band).
Madeline is an exceptional arts student and participates in many areas of the Council Rock North Music Department. She is a choir officer and is a leading member of NorthVoice, Council Rock North’s traditional a cappella choir. She also sings in Rhythm of the Rock, Council Rock North’s Pop A Cappella Choir, and is also a member of the curricular Symphonic Choir and Women’s Chorale. If she isn’t singing, you can find her on stage with the school’s theater troupe, Sock ‘n’ Buskin (SnB.) She is also a board member for SnB. An excellent student, Madeline studies voice privately and has participated in the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association (PMEA) district, region, and state choirs for the past two years.
