Henryetta choir members took honors at the OSSAA district choir contest in Tahlequah this week.
The seventh and eighth grade and high school received excellent ratings in both parts of the competition.
According to choir director Karen Willis, the contest students had to compete in state performance then in sight reading.
In the stage performance choirs sing two songs they have prepared, one has to be without accompaniment and one must be from the OSSAA Preferred Music List. In the sight reading portion, choirs must sing a song they have not seen before, singing it from the sheet music provided.
“I am very proud of our students and the hard work they have put in to meet their goals,” she said. “We have missed several rehearsals due to weather and illness, but these students put in extra rehearsal time on their own to make up for it. I couldn’t ask for a better group of students.”
