Watchung Hills Wins Radio Christmas Choir Contest
NJ1015 contest included high school, middle school and elementary winners.
The third annual contest's winners were announced Friday, and the station said more than 100,000 votes were cast in the contest.
"I'm thrilled at this opportunity to showcase the talent of my students to such a large audience," Angela DiIorio, director of vocal music at Watchung Hills, was quoted in a blog post by Carl Bird. "I'm happy the rest of the state is now able to recognize and hear the work we've been doing at The Hills."
The school's vocal music department includes chorus and advanced chorus classes and the vocal ensemble, which is a co-curricular group meeting in the mornings before classes.
Haddon Heights Elementary School won the elementary school division and was the overall winner, and will receive a new piano from the Great American Piano Company.
