EDISON — Alexandre Barbet, a senior at The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison, was honored to take his singing talents to the national level as a member of the National Honor Chorus.
Barbet, from Plainfield, was among only 370 students out of 24,000 applicants accepted to the chorus, which performed at the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) festival in Nashville, Tenn. from Oct. 27-30. He also was one of only 40 Bass II singers out of 3,000 applicants to be selected for the National Honor Chorus.
Barbet has participated in All-State and All-Eastern Regional choirs but this experience clearly reached another level. Rehearsing for eight hours and more per day and then performing with the nation’s finest young vocalists was a rewarding experience.
“You could hear that this was the best of the best,” Barbet said. “It was pretty amazing. I really loved it and I’m glad I took part in this experience. This was the crowning achievement.”
