On Feb. 4, middle and high school students from throughout the Eastern Shore auditioned for All Shore Chorus. Forty-nine Wicomico students were selected for All Shore Chorus. Their success highlights the high level of music education in Wicomico County Public Schools. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Donna C. Hanlin and the Board of Education are very proud that Wicomico County Public Schools has been named one of the Best Communities for Music Education in the NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) Foundation Survey.
