The Seneca Middle School Honors Chorus has proved once again why they are perennially considered one of the best choral programs in the state.  In April, the group traveled to Columbia to perform in the SC State Choral Performance Assessment.  Competing in the Advanced Choir Division, the highest division available, they received an overall rating of Superior with Distinction, the highest rating available.  Earning this rating means that they received a Superior rating in sight-reading.  Their performance scores of 98, 96 and 96 counted 80% and their sight-reading score of 97 contributed 20% to their overall total score of 96.73.  This score placed them second in the entire state while their sight-reading score of 97 was the highest in the state.  The chorus program at Seneca Middle School is directed by Mrs. Carla Brock who said of their performance, "These students are some of the most talented singers that I have had in my 20 years of teaching, but it is their dedication to hard work combined with their talent that helped them achieve at this level!  They are wonderful musicians and I am so proud of them."
