Five StM students — junior Andrew Gary, sophomores Clara Conatser and Camila Figueroa, eighth grader George Mueller, and seventh grader Zachary Gary — recently participated in the Louisiana Music Educators Association District VI Senior High Honor Choir.
Guided by StM Choir Director Justin M. Blanchard, students prepared for the November 2018 audition to participate in the ensemble.
The Honor Choir rehearsed once as an ensemble before beginning a full weekend of rehearsals with guest clinician Dr. Jaclyn Johnson. The concert featured a variety of selections including one piece by Aaron Copeland, and “Kpanlongo,” a West African folk song. The concert culminated with a rousing gospel rendition of "He Never Failed Me Yet."
