WEST CALDWELL, NJ - James Caldwell freshman Nicole Bruno along with sophomores Eileen Funnell, Madeline Caracappa, Regina Peters and Anna Rizzotti were accepted into Region I Choruses and performed at the North Jersey School Music Association Regional I Concert on Wednesday, Feb. 13.

Performers with the highest scores were accepted into the Regional groups.

Practice took place during four intense rehearsals which each lasted five hours.

  • Sophomore Anna Rizzotti, Soprano I

Performing with the Mixed Chorus were:

  • Sophomore Madeline Caracappa, soprano II
  • Sophomore Eileen Funnell, Soprano I
