Choir places 1st in national competition

April 25, 2004

Albany- The Dougherty High School Chorale went to the National Music Festival held in Atlanta. The students received first place awards in four separate categories, as well as the best overall award.

"It shows them that their success is not predicated upon their environment and that it's all about how you prepare yourself in life in whatever you goal whether it be music or not music. The fact is that if you work hard that hard works always pays off," says Chorale director Mark Butler.

Seniors Timothy Hardwick and Gabriel Powell also took first place honors for their solo selections.
