Congratulations to Catskill High School’s Lily Gallagher, Mia Gottesman, Molly Osswald, and Madison Mudge, who were all selected for the 2023 High School Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Lily, Madison and Molly will be performing with the Treble Choir and Mia will be performing with the Mixed Choir on February 4. Participation in these Honors Ensembles is reserved for the highest-rated young performers from across the world. 

Lily, Mia, Molly, and Madison auditioned for the Honors Performance Series and were recently accepted as finalists after a review by the Honors Selection Board. Acceptance into this elite group is a direct result of the talent, dedication, and achievements they demonstrated in their applications and audition recordings.

All four ladies are members of the Catskill High School Concert Chorus and the Catskill High School Treblaires. Additionally, they are seasoned actresses in the school’s drama club. 

They will join performers from all over the country and beyond for this special performance at the world-famous Carnegie Hall, a venue that marks the pinnacle of musical achievement. The finalists will come together in New York City for five days, where they will have the opportunity to learn from world-renowned conductors, work with other performers, and get a taste of the Big Apple. The Honors Performance will take place Saturday, February 4 at 2:00 p.m. and is open to the public. Tickets can be purchased prior to the performance through the Carnegie Hall box office.

“Being selected to the Honors Performance Series is something each Finalist should be extremely proud of accomplishing,” said Marion Gomez, Music Director for the Honors Performance Series. “We processed nearly 10,000 nominations this year and have selected the most talented student performers from around the world. Working with these conductors and performing at these renowned music halls is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that these musicians will never forget.”
