Choir Director Sheree Stoppel says that state gives students more of a satisfaction.

“Solo and small ensemble state is the most gratifying due to the fact that there’s a lot of pressure on the student performers,” Stoppel said. “We did very well.”

Kendall thinks that the mixed ensemble did well.

“I felt that the mixed ensemble was extremely prepared, focused and determined to give their best,” Kendall said. “It was truly one of our best performances.”

Choir’s next concert, which is themed That 70’s Thing, is Friday, May 11 in the auxiliary gym from 6-9 p.m.
