CHATHAM, NJ - Eight students from the middle school and high school recently represented Chatham as members of the Morris Area Junior and Senior Division Honor Choirs.

CMS singers Madeleine Blanchard, Madelaine Haeringer, Eesha Nagpal, Rachel Rheinhardt, and Lindsey Ripp performed with the Junior Choir under the leadership of Lisa Bagley from Westwood Regional Middle School.

CHS singers Aaron Fontes and Kate Harrigan represented the CHS Choral program in the Senior choir under the baton of Dr. Christopher Thomas of the Rowan University Choral Music faculty.

The student musicians auditioned during the first week of October and were accepted to the competitive auditioned choirs, comprised of the finest singers in Morris County and select surrounding townships. Students attended rehearsals over the span of two weeks, which culminated in a performance at Randolph High School on Oct. 18.
The students were sponsored for membership by CHS Choral Director Michelle Uhler, who also led sectionals during the rehearsal process and said she was “awed” by the way students came together in such a short amount of time to create a beautiful program of choral classics. 

“It is such a wonderful opportunity for our singers to be challenged by and exposed to the conducting styles and choral techniques of professional choral conductors," Uhler said. "They were truly a fantastic group of singers.”
The next competitive honor choir event for our Chatham singers will be Regional Chorus, held in January for the senior division and February for the junior division.
