We are so proud to share that SJ Sophomore, Anna Campolettano has been selected for the High School Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Campolettano will sing soprano alongside peers from across the country on February 10, 2024. Participation in the Honors Ensembles is limited to the highest-rated young performers from across the world.
Campolettano auditioned for the Honors Performance Series and was accepted after a review by the Honors Selection Board. From thousands of applicants, only 350 students in total are accepted to perform either a vocal or instrumental piece. Acceptance to the elite group is a direct result of the talent, dedication, and achievements demonstrated in their application and audition recording. While Campolettano has been singing her entire life, she has studied music for the past five years, and at St. Joseph High School, is a member of the Drama Club.
In response to her selection, Campolettano said, “This is such a wonderful opportunity. I was so excited when I learned that I was accepted!”
Campolettano will join performers 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 where they will have the opportunity to learn from world-renowned conductors, work with other performers, and provide a show-stopping performance. The Honors Performance will take place on February 10, 2024 and is open to the public. Tickets can be purchased beginning approximately 60 days prior to the performance through the Carnegie Hall box office.
“Being selected to the Honors Performance Series is something each Finalist should be extremely proud of accomplishing,” said Marion Gomez, Music Director for the Honors Performance Series. “We processed nearly 10,000 nominations this year and have selected the most talented student performers from around the world. Working with these conductors and performing at these renowned music halls is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that these musicians will never forget.”
