Mohawk Valley Chorus Scholarship winner named

Emily Rosoff, a senior at Saratoga Springs High School, has been named winner of Mohawk Valley Chorus’ $500 scholarship.
The 2013 winner, daughter of Amy Rosoff of Saratoga, plans to attend Westminster Choir College , part of Rider University, in the fall to pursue a degree in vocal music and a singing career.
She has long been involved in musical activities and last year attained a near-perfect score of 99 at New York State School Music Association competition. She is president of the Saratoga Choraliers and has participated in the Suburban Council, Area All- State and All-County choral programs as well as the Saratoga Springs Children’s Choir and the Skidmore Choir.
Besides her musical work at school, Rosoff takes private voice lessons with Susan Hermance Fedak and has a vocal range of nearly three octaves. “Emily is passionate about the field she has chosen to pursue in college,” wrote one of her references, “and has devoted many hours of practice and study to continue to improve her skills.”
She was also cited as being “extremely dedicated to her music and ready to succeed in whatever the future holds” and a “steady and receptive learner with the amazing ability to quickly memorize pieces.” Another said her “vocal quality continues to develop but shows dramatic overtones while remaining flexible.”
Rosoff will  open MVC’s classics concert, featuring “Carmina Burana,” at 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 19, with two solo selections. The program will be at Amsterdam High School . Tickets -- $12 for adults; $9 for senior citizens and students; free to youngsters 12 and under when accompanied by an adult – will be available at the door.
Congrats, Emily!
