San Marcos High Choir To Perform At Carnegie Hall

Madrigal Singers are among just four choirs nationwide invited for Carnegie Hall performance.


The San Marcos High School  Madrigal Singers are among four choirs nationwide chosen to perform at Carnegie Hall  in New York City, the Santa Barbara school district has announced.

The group’s performance March 10 will be part of the fifth annual National High School Choral Festival, sponsored by the Weill Music Institute  at Carnegie Hall.

The festival gives young singers the chance to rehearse a choral masterpiece with conductor Craig Jessop, music director of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The ensemble will perform in Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage.


The other three choirs are from Baltimore; Raleigh, N.C.; and State College, Pa. The four winners were selected by recorded audition from a pool of 71 choirs from across the United States.

Led by Carolyn Teraoka-Brady, San Marcos’ Madrigal Singers are one of five choral groups in the school’s vocal music department. The ensemble performs a varied repertoire of choral literature — from Renaissance to contemporary — for the community and at festivals.

The group has racked up many awards over the past four years, and in 2006 won first place at the National Invitational Choral Festival of Gold in New York City.

At Carnegie Hall in March, Jessop will lead the combined choirs and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s  in Johannes Brahms’ "A German Requiem, Op. 45" with soprano Janice Chandler-Eteme  and baritone Stephen Powell  as soloists. Each choir also will perform under its own conductor.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
