Thursday, April 25, 2013 by MARK RECCEK in School

Catasauqua High School junior Kanyi Creppy not only acts on stage, but he also sings.

Recently, he participated in the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association district and regional chorus competitions.

In order to earn a spot in the Regional Chorus performance in February, he had to audition last October for District Chorus. Out of 100 students who auditioned, he was one of only 13 selected in his voice part to sing in the Regional Chorus. Both competitions required students to sing a selection of music in front a panel of judges.

"Why did we do this?" she asked the board. "We clearly weren't ready to do this."

Berrigan's concern rested with how quickly the course was offered to students.
