WVHS junior Chloe Borthwick On Dec 3 and 4, WVHS junior Chloe Borthwick took part in the annual Winter Conference of the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) at the Eastman Theatre in Rochester. Chloe was accepted into the very small and elite Vocal Jazz Choir. She was one of only six altos in the state to make it into the vocal group. To audition for the program, Chloe had to prepare a standard jazz solo, perform sight-reading on the blues scale and demonstrate her skill at vocal improvisation. Her selection to this program is quite impressive, especially since the high school music program does not include a vocal jazz ensemble!
