In addition to All State Chorus, we have had a lot of exciting opportunities in the Music Department the last few months! To start, October 15th Sarah Swier sang at State Soccer in Tea. Then Sarah Swier, Kimberly Tolsma, and Ashley Tolsma sang at the State Football Championships at the Dome in Vermillion November 11th. Lastly, Ashley Tolsma sang a solo at State Volleyball in Sioux Falls November 18th. Amongst all of these valuable events, we took a bus load of High School students to watch Mt. Marty's production of "Pippin" in Yankton. It is great to expand student's horizons and we were so happy to organize this for them! Congratulations on all of these accomplishments!
