Noah Carver, son of Buzz and Suzanne Carver of Beals Island, was selected to be a member of the Honors Performance Series which will perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City. The Series is a group comprised of high school music students who will come together in New York to perform, tour the city, and attend a Broadway play of their choice.
As a new student, this fall at Washington Academy Noah quickly became involved in school government, after-school clubs and most importantly continued to pursue his love for music with WA Music Department and its director Mrs. Atkinson. Noah’s mom Suzanne states, “ Mrs. Atkinson and the music program at Washington Academy was a huge factor in Noah’s decision to attend the school.” Mrs. Atkinson will be helping Noah prepare for the Honors Performance Series and warmly remarks, “Noah has been an amazing gift to our school! He is so thankful and feels lucky to be able to attend Washington Academy, but we are lucky to have him for not only his musical ability, but his kindness, thoughtfulness, and confidence.”
Noah was inspired to apply for the Honors Performance Series by his friend Josh Pratt of Brunswick High School during a Maine All-State Music event. Noah attended the All-State event as a freshman and performed as a tenor in a Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass (SATB) Choir. He was the first to audition by site reading braille music in the history of the Maine All-State honor. This summer Noah and his voice teacher Gary Magby of Addison worked on voice recordings which were also included with the Honors Performance Series application.
Noah’s performance at Carnegie Hall will take place from January 30 through February 3, 2020.
