CHATHAM, NJ - The annual Chatham High School Spring Honors Music Recital was held this month in the CHS auditorium.

The nineteen musicians performed solo chamber music repertoire to an appreciative audience of music lovers, accompanied by student and local pianists. Among the student performers were several regional, all-state, and nationally recognized CHS musicians.

Open to interested Junior and senior students who earn membership in CHS’ curricular cappella choirs, chamber orchestra, and wind ensemble, students who are members of the Honors Music program take on an enhanced workload in order to earn honors credit for their ensemble courses including recital performances, research papers, peer coaching, participation in regional/all-state ensembles, and community service “hands-on” projects which directly benefit the community.

Violinist Laura Walsh is currently preparing a student string quartet for performances in local nursing homes, and several singers and instrumentalists are volunteering their time to coach peers and elementary students. 

CHS Music faculty members Brian Conti (Band), Krystle Graser (Orchestra), and Michelle Uhler (Choir) noted the level of challenge the students took on this year in selecting a balance of traditional and contemporary repertoire in their private study to prepare for the recital. All directors noted the commitment and dedication of their students as highly inspiring to their peers. In addition, the directors cited the thought and creativity students demonstrate in selecting research topics as important to pursuing their musical interests.

The CHS Music department is also preparing for their Spring concert season with the Band concert April 29th, and Choral/Orchestra concerts on May 19th and 20th, respectively. The CHS Music department will also be traveling to Pennsylvania for formal master classes/adjudication at the Rose Lehrman Center for the Performing Arts by the Gettysburg College Music faculty on May 1st.
