(April 2, 2007) The Ypsilanti High School Concert Choir, under the direction of Elizabeth Patterson, traveled to New York City, March 28-April 1, to compete in the Festivals of Music Competition.

While in New York City, the choir attended the Broadway production of Mary Poppins, toured the United Nations building and NBC studios, and spent the last evening on the Hudson River Spirit Cruise. The choir also sang at Symphony Hall.

The Choir returned with a Third Place Choral Performance Trophy and a rating of “Excellent”. This rating classifies a performance as ‘excellent for the event and class of participants and worthy of distinction.’

Students that went to New York were Lewis Andrews, Ariel Atkins, Kenyatta Barbee, Elizabeth Dwyer, Jasen Freeman, Joshua Glassman, Molly Green, Marissa Harding, Raquel Hart, Adam Herring, Nicole Hinman, Matthew Hughes, Alek Koryzno, Mitchell LIlly, Ramon Lockett, Brittany Moore, Carly O’Neal, Savannah Peak, Hayley Pendergrass, Meredity Raney, Kimberly Tucker-Blake, Jessica Williams, Cara Zuhlke. Parent chaperone’s were Jane Pendergrass and Beth Tiernan. The trip was made possible through the support of the Ypsilanti Choral Association and Endowment Committee.
