MHS student wins All-State Senior Women’s Choir


Recently, Middletown High School sophomore Sarah Martin was inducted into the All-State Senior Women’s Choir. She is one of an elite few who have been inducted into this prestigious group for exceptional singers.

All the inductees must demonstrate their extensive knowledge of not only singing but also site reading (being able to read a piece of music the student has never seen before).
Martin spent a weekend in a hotel near Loyola College, where she and other potential inductees practiced and ultimately performed at the college. Martin performed the best out of the group, according to the judges. She received recognition for the All-State Senior Women’s Choir last week.
When she was first notified of her induction, Martin said, she was “very excited, and ecstatic.”
She said she “couldn’t belive it at first.”
Martin said she appreciates the support her mother and her personal voice coach, Cathie Porter-Borden, have given her throughout her more than six-year-long performing career.
Martin said she is extremely proud of her achievement and she is excited to further her career in the arts. This award is going to help grant her access to high-end colleges for the arts and help her to kickstart her career.Martin wants to eventually become a singer/songwriter.“This is another way to further my ambition,” added Martin. She will continue to work toward her dream and hopes to receive the award again next year.
