SBS student selected for national Honors Chorus
Grace Murphy of Gales Ferry was selected to perform as part of the National Association for Music Education’s All Eastern Honors Mixed Chorus. The chorus, made of students from along the East Coast, will perform at the annual All Eastern Music Festival in Pittsburgh in April.
Murphy, a senior at Saint Bernard School in Uncasville, is the second student in the school’s history to be elected to perform in the NAfME Honors Ensembles. She also performs in the school’s choirs and bands on flute and saxophone.
“I’m excited. It’s a good opportunity to get to meet other musicians from all over,” she said in a release.
“We are so proud of Grace for all her hard work — she is prolific in many genres and this festival will only further her abilities as a performer,” Caitlin Meyer, Saint Bernard School music director, said in a release. “We can’t wait for her to represent [the school] at All Eastern.”
