Five Wiggins High School students were among the forty students who were accepted into honor choir. The five that were selected were: Maddy Shepherd, Lacey Eikenberg, Dolphus Grindle, Bernie Kopetzky, and Becky Kopetzky.
“The auditions were pretty hard, but I think I did well,” said sophomore Maddy Shepherd. Shepherd was one of the five who made it into honor choir. She was selected by Jerry Anderson, the judge of the auditions, and was very happy to be selected.
Other students who participated in auditioning were Ryan Marting and Braedyn Rix; they were among the few students who didn’t make it. “I did decent, but it wasn’t my best singing, and I could have done better,” said Rix.
For the auditions, the students recorded their singing, and then they sent it to Jerry Anderson to see if they were one of the lucky few who made it in. The students will get out of school all day, and put on a concert in the night.
The Voices director Mr. Everett was very proud of all of his students, and was very proud of the ones who made it in. “I’m very happy that such a large group from the school made it into Honor Choir,” said Everett.
The Honor Choir Concert will be held on the night of January 13 at Haxtun High School.
