Sylvester- The Worth County Middle School Advanced Treble Chorus is compromised of seventh and eighth graders.

The group recently won a division title and gold rating at the Heritage Music Festival in South Carolina. Now, they've been invited to go to New York City and compete against some of the best choirs in the country.

"We've been practicing for a while now. We practiced last year and made it to Myrtle Beach and now we're just hoping that we get to go to New York," says eighth grader Ashleigh Welch.

"If we win I would have accomplished something. I'm not going to go home saying I'm just sitting in class, I didn't do anything. We'd accomplish something We went there and we tried our best," adds eighth grader Tracy Johnson.

Before they can go, the students will have to come up with $600 a piece. They've been holding small fundraisers, but are hoping to get some corporate sponsors. If you would like more information about how to help contact choral director Lesli Holton at 229-776-8620.
