Fairfield County Children’s Choir honors high school seniors

Five high school seniors recently were honored by the Fairfield County Children’s Choir for their commitment to choral music, composition, and scholarship. Five of the graduating seniors Kelvin Alvarez, Emily Chizmadia, Sarah Gander, Annie Huber and Kelsey Llewellyn, all from Fairfield earned this year’s Choral Scholar Award for their dedication and participation in the internationally recognized FCCC. All of the recipients have been choir members for the past nine years, from grades 4-12.

In addition to the Choral Award winners, eight other high school seniors graduated from the FCCC this month. Rana Bishuti (Fairfield) Melanie Nelson (Fairfield) Samantha de Lannoy(Southport), Mia DeLasho (Fairfield), Jenny Moran (Fairfield), Hannah Olshansky(Bridgewater), Sarah Quagliariello (Westport) and Katherine Vitale (Fairfield). Conductor Jon Noyes is very proud of all 13 FCCC graduates: “This group of seniors is a unique and talented group of young people who have made a big impact on the FCCC. We will look forward to hearing about their musical activities in college. We wish them all the best in their new endeavors.”

The FCCC, now ending its 20th Anniversary season, is an internationally recognized choral program for children in grades 4 through 12, and is known for intensive instruction in vocal and choral technique. The choir has performed in numerous national and international choir festivals, and its Chamber Singers plan to travel to Colorado this month to perform in the Sing a Mile High International Children’s Choral Festival and Arizona to perform with the Flagstaff Youth Chorale. The four choirs of the FCCC are comprised of over 300 students hailing from nearly every town in Fairfield County.
