Grand Valley High School Choir will participate in the OMEA State Choir Contest in Jackson. The choir has been preparing since District Contest in January. They will go through the same process, but with more difficult music and harder adjudicators. The students in the choir are very enthusiastic about the experience.
Senior choir member Gina Roberson said, “I am pretty excited to go to State Contest this year. It is great that Mr. Cannon can take us this year, especially since it is his first year as director. Props to him!”
The choir will be performing two of the same songs they performed at District Contest at State as well. Over the past few months they also introduced a new song that was a little bit more difficult than the last. The choir members do not seem intimidated at all.
Senior choir member Frances Harrison said, “We worked really hard on our music. We should be confident in our performance at State.”
The choir has been able to participate at the OMEA State Choir Contest for the past three years. They hope to bring home another “Superior” rating again this year.
