This year’s production will be a musical walk down the Great White Way of Broadway. The highlight each night will be the competition by the finalists of the Chorale’s annual scholarship auditions which were held on May 2nd at Studio West of San Diego. These six graduating high school seniors from across San Diego County were chosen from a slate of 22 deserving and multi-talented teens.

Appearing Friday night will be vocalist Jonathan Norwood (Classical Academy High School, Escondido) who will attend Carnegie Mellon University; flutist Jonathan Sussman (Scripps Ranch High School) who will head to USC’s Thornton School of Music in the fall; and vocalist Denise Neumerkel (Rancho Bernardo High School) who will study musical theatre at the University of Southern Colorado.   

Saturday brings a vocal performance by John Michel (West Hills High School) who will attend Grossmont College’s new honors program “The Freshman Academy” before transferring to a four-year university; flutist Omar Gaidarov (Torrey Pines High School) who has chosen Northwestern University to attend in the fall; and saxophonist Jake Boring (Mira Mesa High School) who will pursue his musical education at UCLA.

Besides being musicians of great promise all six have achieved many significant honors and awards during the school years, and are active volunteers in their local community. They are the “complete package” – smart, talented, dedicated and on their way, with your help. You will not be disappointed! You will be entertained!

A total of $13,000 will be divided up among these teens, with $3,000 going to the top spots each night. Final amounts will be decided by audience vote. Come out and support your favorite! It’s your chance to be heard and to support musical arts education.
