This year, we had 3 students selected for the ILMEA All State Choirs. The audition process for these choirs is very difficult, and selection for these ensembles is one of the highest honors a music student can receive. Sophie Hafer and Lauren Duquette were selected for the All State Honors Choir, and Rachel Harmet was selected for the All State Choir. They will have all-day rehearsals on January 26-27, and perform in concerts on the 28th. If anyone is interested in attending these concerts, they will be held on January 28th at Carver Arena in the Peoria Civic Center, beginning at 1:00 pm (All State ensembles) and 3:15 (All State Honor ensembles). In addition, Rucker Parsons was selected from many applicants in Illinois to attend the Future Music Educators Seminar during the same time period.
Congratulations to these fantastic students for their achievement.
