“This past weekend, BGHS senior Elijah McIntosh and junior Hanna Blaylock, our members of the all-state choir, performed at the Embassy Theatre in Fort Wayne during the 2017 Indiana Music Educators Association professional development conference. These two students were selected from among thousands of auditioned singers to join the best high school singers from around the state as members of the all-state choir.
As reported in this week’s Honey Blast, members of the all-state choir, Elijah and Hanna were able to learn from one of the leading conductors and composers of choral music in the United States, Z. Randall Stroope. Dr. Stroope is the director of choral studies at the Oklahoma State University and regularly tours internationally as a clinician and festival conductor. As if that were not exciting enough, the Indiana all-state choir was chosen by Dr. Stroope to give the worldwide debut performance of his newest piece, Vesuvius. Congratulations to both Hanna and Elijah! You have represented our school very well.”
