PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- Danielle Winchester, a senior vocalist at Port Chester High School, has been selected to become a member of the New York All-State Mixed Chorus.

High school juniors and seniors from across New York State are selected for All-State groups through a rigorous audition process at the previous spring’s New York State Music Association Solo Evaluation Festival.

Winchester received a rating of “A+,” with a perfect score of 100, on her required sight-reading and Level Six solo music, “Amarilli," by Caccini, sung in Italian.

Currently the drum major for the Port Chester High School marching band, and president of the school’s Tri-M Music Honor Society, she had previously been selected for All-County Chorus and Band, and most recently was chosen for the area all-state women’s chorus.

She sings with the high school concert and select choirs, and plays clarinet in the concert band.

Her school vocal music teacher is Linda Ventura.

The All-State Mixed Chorus will perform at the New York State Music Association’s annual Winter Conference, held in Rochester, on Dec. 6.

All-State students attend three days of intensive rehearsal prior to their performance.
