Five Carroll Choir Members Participate in American Choral Directors Association Honor Choir

Several students from the Carroll Choral Department participated in the Southwest Division of the American Choral Directors Association Honor Choir March 7-11 in Oklahoma City.

Emma Cave (Treble Choir 8-10), Hunter Wasson (Men’s Choir 7-10), Bella Tran, Garrett Walsh and Sebastian Poorman (Mixed 11-12) were selected from hundreds of auditions in the Southwest Region, which included singers from Colorado, Arizona, Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas and Texas. They participated in rehearsals for 3 ½ days to prepare for the convention ending concert, which was held at the Oklahoma City Civic Center. The singers had to master up to nine difference pieces of music prior to the convention to be prepared for the intensive rehearsals. Each choir was led by a nationally known choral conductor, providing an invaluable learning experience for these students.

ACDA, the American Choral Directors Association is a nonprofit music-education organization devoted to choral music.
