from Maureen Llort, Director of Development at Trenton Children's Chorus: Thank you again for helping make it possible for her to attending High School Vocal Institute at Westminster. Camp provided a very intense musical experience for her along with 150 singers from around the nation and the world. At the final concert at the Princeton University Chapel she performed the Durufle Requiem and Zadok the Priest from Handel's Coronation Anthems. We are most grateful to PFO!
Azhaneet Blackwell is a sophomore at Hopewell Valley High School and a 9-year member of Trenton Children's Chorus. "When I sing, I relate to the songs. Some are catchy and upbeat," she says. "Some have a message going through them, like Art Thou Troubled by Handel. 'Art thou troubled? Music will calm thee.' You can sing it at home if you're going through some trouble and you need something."
Azhaneet is the past recipient of scholarships to attend Camp Albemarle at the American Boychoir School and Middle School Vocal Institute at Westminster Choir College. With TCC, she has performed at the White House, Princeton University, Drumthwacket, for the inauguration of Governor Christie, and for the swearing-in ceremony of U.S. Rep. Rush Holt in Washington, D.C.
