Cannon School junior to sing at Carnegie Hall in honors choir

Jessica Abel, a junior at Cannon School in Concord, is one of the 300 students chosen to perform in this year's High School Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

She'll sing as an Alto 1 in an honors choir on Feb. 9. The choir will have rehearsed their performance in the two days before.

In a release, Morgan Smith, the program director, said the Series processes thousands of applications every year.

Jessica said in an email that she's very excited to sing in New York City. "Being selected to perform at Carnegie Hall is an absolute dream come true," she wrote.

She studies music at school and is a member of the Cannon Belles Women's A Capella. Jessica will also play the lead role of Beatrice in Cannon's upcoming production of Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing." The show runs from Jan. 30 to Feb. 1.

Congratulations, Jessica!

And now to pass this gem along to the next generation:

"Excuse me, sir. Can you tell me how to get to Carnegie Hall?"

Practice, my friend. Practice.
