Congratulations to sixth-grader Connor Hawkins and eighth-grader Ethan Warren who auditioned and were selected to participate in the 2018 North Carolina Music Educators Association Middle School Honors Chorus. This is the highest level of choral achievement for a middle school singer. Only 168 singers were selected for this year’s group, with many hundreds more auditioning from around the state. This is Ethan’s second year being selected to participate in an NCMEA Honors Chorus, the first time being when he was in fifth grade.
Hawkins and Warren will gather with the other selected singers during the NCMEA Conference in Winston-Salem in November to work with guest conductor Mr. Tom Shelton, from Westminster Choir College. They will present a final concert at the Stevens Center in Winston-Salem to culminate the event.
