EAST MARLBOROUGH — Unionville High School Junior Margaret Wu has been selected for the prestigious ACDA National Honor Choir. Last year, Margaret was selected to participate in the PMEA District and Regional Choir Festivals. Following her participation in these festivals, Unionville High School Choral Director,  Jason Throne, recorded and submitted Margaret’s audition, which led to her selection into the 2019 ACDA National Honor Choir.

Margaret is one of only a select few in the region to be chosen by the ACDA to perform in the elite national choir. She is only the second UHS singer to be selected for an ACDA National Honor Choir in school history.

“I’m very proud of Margaret,” stated Throne. “She worked really hard on her audition and competed against singers from around the country from both high school and college levels. Singing in an ACDA National Honor Choir is a once in a lifetime experience and I am so excited that she will have this opportunity.”

The finest choral musicians from all over the country will meet in Kansas City to rehearse with master conductor, Dr. Sandra Snow, and perform choral music at the very highest level. The four-day conference will begin February 27, 2019, culminating with a final performance at the Kauffman Center on March 2.

“I feel honored to have been chosen to sing in Kansas City with so many other talented singers from across the nation,” stated Margaret. “I’d like to thank Mr. Throne for providing me with this opportunity. I’m so excited for February!”

Before Margaret travels to Kansas she will perform in the 2018 PMEA District Choir Festival during which she will have an opportunity to once again audition for the regional and state choirs.
