Choral Scholar Award winners announced

Six high school seniors were recently honored by the Fairfield County Children’s Choir for their commitment to choral music, composition, and scholarship.  

Six of the graduating seniors — Jared Bovine, Sara Kryspin and Tara Kotulsky of Fairfield, Vandy Sampson of Monroe, Katherine Waugh of Easton, and Christopher Fusco of Southport — 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 fourth grade through their senior year in high school.

In addition to the choral award winners, six other high school seniors graduated from the FCCC this month, including Patrick Agonito, Nicole Violone, and Eliza Elliot of Fairfield, Rose Giannicchi of Redding, Lauren Smith of Trumbull, and Emmanuel Chinyumba of Bridgeport.  Conductor Jon Noyes is very proud of all 12 FCCC graduates.

“This group of seniors is a unique and talented group of young people who have made a big impact on the FCCC,” she said. “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 21st season, is an internationally recognized choral program for children in grades four 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 New Orleans in June to participate in the Crescent City Choral Festival. The four choirs of the FCCC are comprised of over 300 students hailing from nearly every town in Fairfield County.
