RHS Classic Sounds Wins Virtual Choir Experience

RHS Classic Honors Choir  

ROXBURY, NJ (June 15, 2020) – At the end of May, Roxbury High School Performing Arts Lead Teacher Patrick Hachey received an email from a Roxbury parent regarding a contest to win a Virtual Choir experience through All In Productions, a husband and wife duo in Canada. 

Hachey submitted an entry on behalf of Roxbury High School Classic Sounds Honors Choir. He explained, “Usually, due to the craziness of life, I don’t enter such contests. However, as lately all of my school time is spent at the computer, I filled in the brief entry and submitted it. I mentioned that 50% of the members of this particular ensemble are seniors and that this experience would be a nice capstone to a rather disappointing spring.” 

A few days after the submission, Hachey received word that this choir had been selected as the winner and that’s when the kids got to work! 

“Although the final product is no replacement for the joy and community of making music together in one space, I am so proud of the work these students put into this project. I miss these young musicians and beautiful people so much!”
