Juniors Marie Berlovitz and Ethan Davenport join an elite group of singers who auditioned last spring and now have been selected to perform in the 2016 High School Honors Performance Series. They are set to take the stage at Carnegie Hall Sunday, Feb. 7.
Chosen from a field of 18,000 performers worldwide, Berkovitz and Davenport will perform alongside some of the 750 students who auditioned, and were selected from a field of 18,000 students nominated for the 2016 High School Honors Performance Series.
As finalists, they are considered among the highest-rated high school performers worldwide. Berlovitz, a soprano II and Davenport, a tenor I, are members of the South High Pop Singers and Varsity Choir under the direction of music teacher Laurie Meyers.
The Honors Performance Series was created to showcase accomplished individual high school performers on an international level by allowing them to study under master conductors and perform at Carnegie Hall.
Tickets are available for the honors Choral Performance and can be purchased through the Carnegie Hall box office.
