Newark attends All-State Music Festival

Hornell High School Senior Kuryn Newark had the experience of a lifetime last weekend when she participated in the New York State School Music Association's Conference All-State Festival. The festival was held from November 30 to December 3 in Rochester.

Newark performed as an Alto II in the Mixed Chorus and was selected from thousands of students who auditioned for the honor last spring at solo and ensemble festivals throughout the state.

Newark admitted to being extremely nervous, but quickly discovered that her hard work preparing for the festival paid off. This year's Mixed Chorus was conducted by Dr. David Fryling, Choral Director at Hofstra University, who set three rules for the talented group: listen, lead simply and subdivide everything.

As a result of roughly 20 hours of rehearsal with Dr. Fryling, Newark said she is a much better sight-reader and pays closer attention to vowel shapes and posture when she sings.

"It was an amazing experience and a great opportunity," she said. "I learned so much. I hope that students from Hornell can continue to participate."

After participating in the festival, Newark has revised her college plans. She hopes to major in Musical Theater at SUNY Fredonia next year. She'll audition for a spot in the program in February. In the meantime, she's enrolled in dance classes to help her prepare.

"It's incredibly difficult to do what she did," said Chris van Leeuwen, High School vocal music instructor. "The equivalent in athletics would be a starter on the #1 team in the state."

"When she auditioned, she had to captivate a judge who was looking at not only her skill, but her personality, emotion and delivery. It's incredibly difficult."

The experience was rewarding for van Leeuwen as well. This is the second year that Hornell has had a student selected for the festival, which he described as "gratifying."

"Growth is measured differently in music than in other subjects," he said. "Our students are with us for several years. We make a long-term investment in a student's character and personality."

While Newark participated in the festival, van Leeuwen participated in several of the 240 professional development opportunities that were available for teachers. Many of the workshops were practical and included demonstrations by high school performing groups from across the state.
