Congratulations
to the Winners of the Easton Choral Arts Society
High School Choral competition.

First Place $2500
Arundel High School Chamber Choir, Gambrills, MD

Second Place $1500
Tower Hill Vocal Ensemble, Tower Hill School, Wilmington, DE

Third Place $1000
Liberty High School Madrigals, Sykesville MD.

The winner was the Arundel High School Chamber Choir, whose choral music department received a check for $2,500.  The choir’s lovely blend, excellent pitch, and control of subtle dynamic changes were on display during its varied and exciting program.

Second place, receiving $1500, went to the Tower Hill Vocal Ensemble from Wilmington, Delaware, an ensemble whose precision and choral timbre delighted the crowd.

The third place award of $1,000 was won by the Liberty High School Madrigals from Sykesville, Maryland, whose technique, exemplified by the singers’ extraordinary control of the numerous pianissimo passages contained in their selections, was ethereal and sublime.

All in all, the quality of performance could hardly have been higher, presenting a difficult choice for those charged with deciding the placements.

We want to thank our generous sponsors, volunteers and  performers who made this competition possible.  We look forward to it becoming an annual traditional contribution to the arts on the Eastern Shore.
