Lower Dauphin High School vocalist picked for All-Eastern Chorus

Posted

Lower Dauphin High School junior Aidan Ferguson was selected to participate in the National Association for Music Education All-Eastern Honor Mixed Choir in Pittsburgh this April.

The son of Leah and Sean Ferguson, Aidan participated in the all-state choral festival as a Bass 1 in the spring of 2018. He was also a regional qualifier in both orchestra (violin) and chorus.

At Lower Dauphin, he is a member of the Chamber Singers, Men’s A Capella, orchestra and pit orchestra. He is also a three-year member of the Tri-M Music Honor Society.

Aidan will perform as a Bass 1 in the All-Eastern mixed chorus along with 320 other students from the eastern region of the United States — Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Vermont and Washington, D.C. The performance will take place Sunday, April 7, in the Spirit of Pittsburgh Ballroom at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.

He will be directed by Dr. Rollo Dilworth, chairman of music education and music therapy and professor of choral music education at Temple University.

He is the sixth Lower Dauphin vocalist to make it to the All-Eastern level. He qualified for All-Eastern recognition after reaching states as a vocalist. Students who reach states as sophomores and juniors are eligible to apply and each state music educators association nominated students based on their musicianship.

Aidan is under the direction of Ms. Elizabeth Colpo at Lower Dauphin High School.
