Middle School Chorus Wins Top Honors at Southern Star Music Festival
April 8th, 2019
Over the weekend the middle school chorus had the opportunity to perform at the Southern Star Music Festival at Riverside Epicenter. A host of judges from colleges and high schools across the Southeast were in attendance and gave the Wesleyan chorus a gold rating across the board (top marks). A few of the judges remarked, “so many of you look like you are enjoying what you are singing” and “what a lovely sound”.
At the end of the weekend, there was an awards ceremony at Six Flags Over Georgia where it was revealed that Wesleyan had won the Southern Star Sweepstakes, declaring the school the top middle school chorus of the competition.
Meg Foster, Director of Fine Arts and Middle School Chorus teacher, said, “This group of students sings from the heart and is really versatile. They were able to perform a traditional song of worship, a spiritual, and an arrangement of a children’s play song with equal skill, style and energy. I’m really proud of them!”
After the performance, the students had the chance to explore and enjoy Six Flags with their peers and a number of chaperones from the school. It was a fun and successful weekend for all involved!
