On May 13th, South Seneca High School’s Vocal Jazz group traveled to Darien Lake to participate in the Darien Lake Music Festival. School Music groups participating receive a grade, rating, and comments from judges as well as competing against other schools in the same class and competing for Grand Champions at the same performance site.
South Seneca High School unfortunately did not have anyone else to compete with this year in the Show Choir class, but they did receive a grade of 96.5, which is rated as “Outstanding as Distinction.” They came up close behind Grand Champions of Choruses, Elmira High School. They only missed Grand Champions by two points.
Nathaniel Bauder, a twelfth grade Bass, received an award for “Outstanding Soloist” for his performance of “With You” during a medley from the musical, Pippin.
