Middlesboro High School freshman Hayden Bennett was recently one of 200 students statewide selected to attend the University of Kentucky’s Annual All Male Chorus Day.
Bennett was one of 30 young men chosen to perform on stage with the vocal group which was recently featured on NBC’s “The Sing-Off.”
The acoUstiKats are a select a cappella ensemble of 16 voices from the Men’s Chorus. They perform numerous concerts each semester for university, church and community functions as well as at every Men’s Chorus concert.
Specializing in doo-wop and a cappella pop styles, they have recorded two Cd’s and are one of the university’s most visible ensembles (http://finearts.uky.edu/music/acoUstiKats).
The acoUstiKats perform under the direction of Dr. Jeff Johnson. Bennett is member of the MHS choir, which performs under the direction of Elizabeth Edwards.
