A choir from Cres­cent Col­le­giate did very well in a singing com­pe­ti­tion last month in Florida.

The South Dildo school took part in the WorldStrides On­Stage com­pe­ti­tion in Or­lando dur­ing a trip south of the bor­der April 18-23.

Un­der the di­rec­tion of Sarah McDon­ald, the Cres­cent Col­le­giate Vo­cal En­sem­ble re­ceived a Gold Stan­dard Award and sec­ond-place hon­ours in the Women’s Choir cat­e­gory. Stu­dent Mackenzie Smith also re­ceived a Spe­cial Ova­tion Award for her out­stand­ing work as a soloist with the group.

McDon­ald gave credit to her stu­dents for wow­ing ad­ju­di­ca­tor’s and or­ga­niz­ers alike with their beau­ti­ful singing, adding they rep­re­sented the school very well.

The choir also earned an in­vite to the WorldStrides Na­tional Youth Choir event, as well as any of the five WorldStrides Fes­ti­vals of Gold sched­uled to take place next year in dif­fer­ent ci­ties across Amer­ica. These events would give stu­dents the op­por­tu­nity to per­form in world-renowned con­cert halls.

McDon­ald said she’s now work­ing closely with stu­dents, staff and the school com­mu­nity to see which op­por­tu­nity would best suit the choir. She added the choir is grate­ful to every­one who sup­ported the group on their way to Or­lando.
