The sixth graders were part of a 200 voice children’s choir, chosen from over 400 students from across the state. The youth choir, made up of seventh, eighth and ninth grader, contained over 200 voices performing songs in four part harmony.
It was announced that the 2014 conference will be held in New Orleans and another performing group would be added to the Youth Choir as it has grown so much that many students are being excluded due to lack of available space.
The students worked with nationally renowned director/composers learning new skills and making new friends from across the state.
“I am very proud of all the students who audition.” HMS choir director Karl Harrod said. “The music is a couple of levels higher than what we do here at Hurst and this provides that student with exceptional talent an opportunity to perform in that type of group.”
