Five Milford High School (MHS) students participated in the All-State Chorus performance held at Seaford High School on Saturday, February 22. MHS seniors Tara Holstein and Morgan Mariner along with junior Sarah Jump, sophomore Molly Fulton and freshman Valeria Coverdale took part in several practices throughout January and February, led by guest conductors from Missouri and California. The MHS students also joined other gifted singers to prepare five songs which all represented diverse cultures, genres and eras.

“The performance I think went very well,” exclaimed Jump who participated in All-State choir this year for the second time. “I would want to live it all over again.” Although Jump had a great experience, she also commented on how one must be “very prepared” to get into the All-State ensemble.

An audition in November required the young students to sing a predetermined solo piece and quartet piece, as well as an unknown sight-reading piece. By January, after hearing students representing both public and private schools in Delaware, the All-State staff finalized the members of the chorus.

“It has been my privilege to coach and sponsor Delaware All-state singers,” commented Ms. Kathy Wetherhold, MHS coral instructor of 12 years. “More than one hundred MHS students have earned the opportunity at the All-State level and it is a tradition that I hope Milford School District continues to value and support.”
