4 SMS Students selected to National Honor Choir

Four from Sycamore Middle School have been selected to participate in the American ChoralDirectors Association (ACDA) National Honor Choir at their biennial conference in February. ACDA is a nonprofit music education organization whose goals outline the association’s dedication to the advancement of choral music. The association members are strong advocates for music in the schools and provide honors and enrichment opportunities, like this festival choir, for students.

After learning required music and sending a recorded audition to ACDA, these six students were selected from thousands of submissions from all 50 states. In February, the Sycamore choir members will spend four days in Kansas City and rehearse with renowned choral conductors in preparation for concerts for thousands of conference attendees as well as friends and family. These highly selective choirs are not only led by notable directors,but are often used to premiere works by leading composers in choral music.

Selection for this opportunity is quite an honor, and we are proud of their admirable accomplishment! Congratulations to Sycamore Middle School students, Cassandra Chamoun, Gabriel Jovanovich, Samuel McDonald, and Madelyn Sedevie!
