The novel coronavirus may have changed many things, but not when it comes to the outstanding performances of the chorus students at Seneca Middle School.  Recently, chorus students across the District auditioned to be a part of the annual All-County Chorus.  When Seneca Middle School Choral Director Carla Brock saw the results, she was thrilled to see that 32 of the 36 All-County members are faces that she sees everyday in her SMS classes.  Even with coronavirus safety protocols, Brock has worked hard to maintain her exacting standards, which regularly bring award-winning results.  As Brock put it, "I am so proud of our students, who even through a pandemic, singing with masks and distancing, continue to strive to their best, work hard and keep great attitudes despite difficulties.  Making music has given us all lots of hope!"

The Seneca Middle School students who qualified by audition for the 2020 All-County Chorus are:  James Adams, Nyterious Bradley, Avery Butler, Lillian Cook, Nora Coutu, Kaitlyn Day, Grant Duvall, Sadie Goodroe, Olivia Gray, Hayden Haas, Brighton Hamilton, Claire Hart, Emily Ivey, Ava James, Tyler Johnson, Kylie Kalchthaler, Riley Maney, Riley Martin, Sawyer Moss, Meg Nation, Anna Campbell Nations, Noah Odom, Cole Palmer, Sydney Parkhurst, Kaitlyn Patterson, Campbell Roberts, Chloe Sayres, Avery Smith, Trinity Traynum, Macie Ellen White, Nation Williams, and Caleb Zeller.

Thirty-two members of the Seneca Middle School chorus program were named to the 2020 All-County Chorus.
