SSHS stu­dents make All-Re­gion Choir

Siloam Springs Herald Leader - - RECORDS - From Staff Re­ports

Twenty-six Siloam Springs High School stu­dents re­cently made the Re­gion 6 All-Re­gion Choir.

Stu­dents who com­peted in the au­di­tion prac­ticed for nearly two months to pre­pare, ac­cord­ing to Ju­lianna Tufts, head choir di­rec­tor. They com­peted against other stu­dents from other area schools, in­clud­ing Ben­tonville, Rogers, Gentry, Pea Ridge, Moun­tain Home and Har­ri­son. Each stu­dent is given a rank­ing and if the rank­ing is high enough, they make the choir, she said.

“Con­grat­u­la­tions to the 26 Siloam Springs High School stu­dents that made ei­ther the ju­nior high or high school all-re­gion choir,” Tufts said.

On Nov. 4, stu­dents who made the choir will prac­tice at a day-long re­hearsal and give pub­lic per­for­mances that evening. Ju­nior high stu­dents, in grades seven through nine, will per­form at 4 p.m. at Ben­tonville High School. Se­nior high stu­dents, in grades 10 through 12, will per­form at 6 p.m. at Ben­tonville High School.

All 10th through 12th grade Siloam Springs stu­dents who made the choir also qual­ify to au­di­tion for the All-State Choir in Fe­bru­ary. The high school choir pro­gram is un­der the di­rec­tion of Tufts and Ethan Wells, as­sis­tant di­rec­tor.
