RCS musicians chosen to participate in Melodies of Christmas Chorale

Seven RCS High School students were chosen to participate in this year’s Empire State Youth Orchestra Melodies of Christmas Chorale. They will perform along with the Empire State Youth Orchestra at Proctors Theatre, Dec. 13-16 in support of Albany Medical Center’s Melodies Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders. Since the inception of the annual Melodies of Christmas concerts, millions of dollars have been raised for the cause. The program will also air on CBS 6 on Dec. 24 and 25.

These students (listed below) were selected from an extremely large pool of applicants in early fall and have been rehearsing since then to prepare for the upcoming performances.
