Missing from the photo were Kaitlyn Henderson and Mackenzie Amore. About 100 choir students from seventh through 12th grade participated in solos, duets, trios and large groups at the district festival in Oostburg on March 16 and 17. Qualifying for state required students to earn a starred first rating on a 1 to 3 scale. The state festival is Saturday, April 27, at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. “Solo/ensemble is a valuable opportunity for students to participate in small group and independent music making,” choir director Linda Ruona said.
