Choir Rocks Festival to Its Core

“First year as a choir! First year at Festival! Rating of straight 2’s, 1’s go to state, so we’re close!” The choir has only been meeting since September and even more new students were added to the group at the beginning of the second term. Middle school students make up 1/3 of the entire choir which makes this achievement even more amazing. The entire choir performed challenging, high school level music in both their performance and in sight reading. The clinician of the choir said, “I haven’t seen a choir this responsive in over 4 years,” and “I appreciate the attention and respect you give to your director.” Mrs. Ortell, the choir director, said, “I’m so proud of my choir, it’s amazing how much we have accomplished since September.” Let’s hope this a sign of things to come.
