Piano recital to raise funds for music abroad
Tioga Central High School student Madeline Hoover will be giving a piano recital on March 24 at 3 p.m., at Abide in the Vine Fellowship on Taylor Road in Owego, N.Y. The purpose is to raise money so that she may tour in Europe with American Music Abroad (AMA).
AMA is an honour choir consisting of some of the finest young musicians in our area who go abroad for a rare musical, educational and cultural experience. They will be visiting Germany, Switzerland, France, Luxembourg and Belgium this summer. It is known to be a great opportunity to make new friends, have a professional musical experience, and learn about the world outside America.
Admission to the recital is a goodwill donation of any amount. Also, refreshments will be served.
Madeline is in her junior year and has been playing piano for nearly ten years. She accompanies Tioga's Junior High choruses and has accompanied Mansfield University's summer camp chorus. She earned a perfect score on a level 6 NYSSMA solo and was selected as an alternate for all-state. Madeline is a leader in the High School chorus, and attends NYSSMA for voice. She has been in all-county chorus for three years. Madeline plans to attend Mansfield University for music education to become a chorus teacher.
