This year Roxbury’s own Patrick Hachey, RHS vocal music teacher and lead performing arts teacher, was given the prestigious honor of directing the All-State Choir. Conductors are chosen through a rigorous application process and only one is selected each year to work with the ensemble.
The purpose of NJ All-State Chorus is to offer a unique educational experience to the best-qualified vocal students in N.J.. Accepted students will perform choral literature of the highest quality, under the direction of an outstanding conductor.
