We congratulate two Watervliet High School students who were invited to perform in the Albany Pro Musica High School Choral Festival held this past weekend at the UAlbany Performing Arts Center.

Ninth-grader Kylee Shellenberger and tenth-grader Oliver Tobin were selected by application to sing with a 175-member choir made up of students from more than 30 schools across the Capital Region. Oliver performed at Saturday’s festival. Unfortunately, Kylee was unable to attend.

All high school students appear on stage at the Albany Pro Musica High School Choral Festival.The Albany Pro Musica festival featured a full day of vocal workshops, rehearsals, and enrichment opportunities on the UAlbany campus, and ended with a concert that was open to the public.

We are proud of both Oliver and Kylee for being selected to participate in this exciting opportunity!
