Miller leads L-S contingent to County Chorus
"The county chorus experience is one that I would do again in a heartbeat," she says. "It gives you such an accomplished feeling when you practice and practice the music. You know every eighth rest and syncopated rhythm and then can share that love for music with others."
The blind audition -- based solely on "raw chops" (no looks or theatrical performance) -- consists of singing two songs, one a cappella and one accompanied. Several judges, who never see (only hear) those auditioning give scores, and those selected participate in the County Chorus festival, which will be held at Lebanon High School on Saturday, January 9.
Miller placed sixth among those auditioning on the Alto I part; two fellow seniors -- Alto II Samantha Ingram and Soprano I Jessie Reynolds -- placed third and sixth respectively on their parts.

Although she attributed the phrase to another senior, Cassidy Ingram, Miller quips, "[I]t's a great way to start the year with a high note. No music pun intended."
