Eight St. Mary's Academy students selected for the Oregon All-State Choir, one freshman selected for the Oregon All-State Orchestra
Eight St. Mary's Academy students have been selected to sing in the Oregon Music Educator's All-State Choir, and one freshman has been accepted into the Oregon Music Educator's All-State Orchestra. These nine students will be joining some of the best student-musicians from across the state to perform at the Oregon Music Education Association (OMEA) Conference on Sunday, January 18, 2015 in Eugene, Ore.
"I am so proud of the number of students who have been selected for this elite choir and orchestra. All of our students work really hard on their craft, and it is a great honor to be recognized and chosen to perform in front of Oregon's Music Educators. I am excited to see them on stage next January," said Kathy Briggs, St. Mary's Academy's director of choral music.
OMEA is comprised of approximately 900 members who are dedicated to the music education of Oregonians of all ages. A majority of members are educators ranging from elementary school music teachers to college professors. Students were asked to send their audio track to OMEA this fall, under the supervision of their teacher-member of OMEA. Auditions were held online by screeners who reviewed student recordings.
