Danielle Curtsinger, a junior at SCHS, represented Spencer County at the Kentucky Music Educators Association 2010 All-State Chorus at the Kentucky Center for Performing Arts on February 5, following 3 days of rehearsal at the KMEA conference in Louisville. Over 1400 students representing 105 schools across Kentucky auditioned in October to be considered for the honor of the All-State Chorus.

Danielle’s two years in the All-State Chorus and three years in the University of Louisville’s Honor Choir Festival have also led her to be selected by U of L Choral Activities Director Dr. Kent Hatteberg to be a 2010 Kentucky Ambassador of Music.  The Kentucky Ambassadors of Music tour is an educational program designed for musical honor students to perform and share their musical talents, while gaining cultural enrichment abroad.  Over 200 Kentucky students were invited to the program based on their musical talent, leadership, and character.  Ambassadors will fly out June 30 to begin their 16-day concert tour of Europe, including performance stops in England, France, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria, Italy, and Germany.

A motorcycle run fundraiser is being planned for early spring to help offset the cost of the Ambassador trip.  Anyone wishing to participate or donate can contact Danielle’s family.
