CHATHAM, NJ - Six Chatham High School musicians recently performed with the New Jersey Music Educators Association (NJMEA) All-State Mixed Choir. The singers were prepared by and sponsored through the audition process by Chatham High School Choral Director Ken Bryson.

Students attended competitive auditions in April to audition for the highly selective choral ensemble. Seniors Peter Hoefler, Camryn Puccio, Elizabeth Stuart and sophomores Liam Driscoll, Ronan Green, and Aditya Roy were successful in gaining membership into the prestigious ensemble for New Jersey’s top high school singers, a tradition of eighty-six years.

Their rehearsals over the spring and fall months culminated in two recent well-attended performances at the New Jersey Educator Association (NJEA) conference in the Atlantic City Boardwalk Hall Ballroom on Nov. 10 and at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) Prudential Hall Nov. 19.

This year’s program contained an array of challenging choral repertoire conducted by Patrick Hachey, Lead Teacher for the Roxbury High School Performing Arts Department, and accompanied by Lorraine Lynch, retired Lead Teacher of Performing Arts in Roxbury.

Those were the days!

This was back in the early to mid-1900s. The Passaic River meandered through grassy meadows and woods on the north side of Chatham. The marshy ...

To the Editor,

I told my daughter I needed to write about gun violence. Know what she told me? “Mom, be sure you’re not too polarizing. People won’t listen.” She’s right. At age eleven she’s figured out that we adults need to be reminded how to speak to one another in order to fix a problem. But I have hope and belief that we can fix that discourse in our ...
