McCulloch, Justice students selected for All-State Honor Choir

Posted on Nov. 20 2017 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
News Blog Category - News Marion Community Schools is proud to announce that choir students from two of our schools have earned a spot on the 2018 IMEA All-State Honor Choirs.

Congratulations to Mia de las Alas, an eighth-grader at McCulloch Junior High School, and to Justice Intermediate School students Caleb Huff, a fifth-grader, and Emily Luckey, a sixth-grader, on this outstanding achievement!

Mia joins a tradition of excellence at McCulloch; this is the fourth year in a row choir students from the school have been selected to the IMEA All-State Junior High Honor Choir. Caleb and Emily are making history as the first Justice Intermediate students to ever audition for the IMEA Elementary Honor Choir, and the first Justice students selected for the choir.

Students submit a recorded audition in the fall, which is then evaluated by three judges and compared against hundreds of other students from across the state. This is an elite group, as each of the honor choirs includes only about 150 singers, some of the best in the state.

The choirs will gather together for two days of rehearsal on Jan. 11 and 12, and then will be featured as guest performers at the IMEA professional development conference. The will perform on Jan. 12 at the Grand Wayne Embassy Theater in Fort Wayne.

The All-State Honor Choir is a great opportunity for these talented students, and will give them the chance to learn and grow as musicians. We are so proud of all three of these students, and their teacher, Christina Huff!
