Students from Colonel Richardson and North Caroline High Schools, and Colonel Richardson and Lockerman Middle Schools recently performed in the prestigious All-Shore Band, Chorus, and Orchestra ensemble concerts.

Students from every school system on the Eastern Shore competed for a limited number of positions in a rigorous audition process. Students receive and prepare audition music early in the school year before gathering at one of the tryout locations in January and February. In addition, they have to prepare multiple scales and solos, and are required to perform music they have never seen before. Students are then scored, ranked and chosen based on their placement in the ranking.

“We are extremely proud of these talented musicians and singers,” said Robin Daubach, supervisor of instruction. “With so many students from all over the Shore vying for a spot in one of the ensembles, the number of Caroline students selected to perform was impressive.”

All Shore Band was established sometime in the mid-’70s; several Caroline staff members went through the process of auditioning and qualifying when they were students. All Shore Chorus began in the mid-’80s and has grown since then to two ensembles. All Shore Orchestra is the newest addition, created just two years ago.
