Two PCHS Students Selected to Perform at Carnegie Hall
PARK CITY, UT (January 27, 2022) – Two Park City High School students were selected to sing at Carnegie Hall for the WorldStrides Honors Performance Series.
Ali Kennedy, PCHS Senior, and Justin Zink, PCHS Sophomore, were nominated last year by the former PCHS choir director, Christin Abbott. The Honors Performance Series only invites 500 students of the nearly 10,000 student applications worldwide.
Ali and Justin will join fellow student performers from the United States, Australia, Bermuda, China, Guam, and South Korea for a special performance at the world-famous Carnegie Hall, a venue that marks the pinnacle of musical achievement.
The finalists will come together in New York City for five days in February. They will have the opportunity to learn from world-renowned conductors, work with other finalists, and get a taste of New York City. Two performances, an Honors Instrumental Performance and Honors Choral Performance will take place Saturday, February 5 and Sunday, February 6 respectively, and are open to the public.
“After having performances worldwide impacted for over a year, we are excited to be returning to the stage at Carnegie Hall,” said Marion Gomez, Program Director for the Honors Performance Series. “Being selected to the Honors Performance Series is something each finalist should be extremely proud of accomplishing.”
According to Eva Marble, PCHS choir and orchestra director, the program brings students together from around the world to collaborate.
“I am proud of Ali and Justin for putting in the work outside of class for this program, ” said Marble. “They will have the opportunity to work with master conductors and will spend most of their time in New York rehearsing for their performance on Sunday evening. Ali and Justin have been preparing for their performance for months. They have spent countless hours learning their music and training their voices to sing with the best of the best next week.”
The Honors Performance Series was established to feature talented student musicians in a once-in-a-lifetime performance on stage at Carnegie Hall.
