Tim Newton Conducts Albany Area All-State High School Chorus

On November 17-18, Tim Newton conducted the New York State School Music Association Zone 7 Area All-State High School Chorus, of 170 of the Capital Region’s best high school singers, representing more than 40 school districts. Newton led the chorus in eight hours of rehearsal and performed choral music from Mozambique, Zambia, Latvia, England and the US. Featured works included Jonathan Dove’s double chorus work, Ring Out, Wild Bells, and Eriks Esenvald’s Northern Lights that employs hand chimes and water glasses, a soloist, and an eight-part chorus. This was Tim’s third NYSSMA Area All-State High School Choral invitation, and was held at Saratoga Springs High School.
