Singers hit the right notes at All-County Festival

Nine Wildcats from the chorus department performed at the King Center as part of Brevard’s annual All-County Festival on Saturday.

“There is a total of three rehearsals in the days leading up to the concert,” Chorus Director Amy Davis said. “There is one for two hours on the Thursday before the concert, then a full day rehearsal on Friday and a two-hour rehearsal the day of. There are three different groups performing, but at different times. Chorus is the first concert of the day.”

This year, the clinician for high-school chorus was Dr. Cara Tasher, director of choral studies at the University of North Florida. Tasher led the rehearsals on Friday and Saturday .

“My favorite part was honestly how energetic and spunky Dr. Tasher was,” junior Tessa Smith said. “She inspired me to have fun and learn while doing so, although I also loved seeing old friends from camp and making some new ones. This was my first year doing All-County. I am definitely planning on doing it next year, which will sadly be my last since I will be a senior.”
