SHS Student Advances in National Vocal Competition
Salem High School sophomore A’ndrea Hollars has been selected as one of ten Regional Semi-Finalists for the upcoming “Great American Songbook” vocal competition in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Hollars is a five-year Choir member, two-time Gold Medalist at the ISSMA State Solo-Ensemble Auditions, and has been involved with Vocal Music instruction through the SCS 21st Century after-school program.
The focus of the competition is to share masterpieces from the “Golden Age of American Song” – the 1920s–1950’s – with new generations of performers and audiences. Judges audition recorded selections and select students for Regional Competitions held in five cities across the country.
Locally, SHS Choir students learn about this material and perform it as an ensemble. Taking it another step further this spring were sixteen SHS vocal jazz students that put in additional time on individual instruction and solo preparation. Of these, eight were selected to record demos in a professional studio environment, and six students produced tracks that were entered in the competition. Sample tracks can be heard on Twitter @SalemChoirs.
Hollars and the nine other Regional contestants were selected from high schools in a four-state area (Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, and Indiana). Two Finalists from each Regional site nationwide will congregate at the National Finals this summer at the Palladium in Carmel, Indiana for a week of singing boot camp, followed by a shot at cash prizes and further performance opportunities.
