The Palmyra-Macedon High School Select Choir, directed by Jill Davis, will perform at 2 p.m. Jan. 14 at Carnegie Hall, 881 7th Ave., New York.

The 31-member choir will perform four selections. Palmyra-Macedon Middle School music teacher Kayla Mayou will accompany the choir on two pieces. The concert will feature a combined performance of “Dona Nobis Pacem” by Ralph Vaughan Williams with collegiate and high school singers.

The choir was invited by Peggy Dettwiler, director of choral activities at Mansfield University of Pennsylvania, where Davis did her undergraduate studies. Dettwiler will perform as the performance’s artistic director, and Pal-Mac alumni Will Palmer and Ben Kearns will perform with the Mansfield University Concert Choir.

Choir members Kate Jones and Howie Barnes said that the piece they were most looking forward to is “Omnia Sol” by Z. Randall Stroope, which Jones described as extremely powerful, especially with Carnegie Hall’s acoustics.

The choir previously performed at Carnegie Hall in 2014. To prepare for their next performance, Select Choir members recently researched the building, its facts and overall background.

Students will spend three days in New York City, and highlights will include a performance of “Wicked” on Broadway and a stage tour at Radio City Music Hall. Barnes, who has been to New York City before, said he is excited to see his fellow choir members’ reaction to its beauty. Jones, who has never been, and she said she is looking forward to Carnegie Hall’s atmosphere.

Tickets to the performance cost $60 and are nonrefundable. The choir has set up a bus for friends, family and community members to attend to the show.
