Rockford choirs make strong showing at state competition

RHs-ChoirStudents from Rockford HS Choirs once again made a strong showing at State Solo & Ensemble Festival on April 20 at Portage Central High School.

Every ensemble from RHS received Superior or Excellent ratings. These ensembles included: Chamber Singers, Chamber Women, and Women’s Chorus directed by Mandy Mikita Scott; Advanced Women’s Ensemble Co-directed by Scott and Katie Hillyard; and the Rockford Aces directed by Jed Scott. Additionally, Chamber Singers was one of six ensembles selected (from more than 30) to be considered for performance at Michigan Youth Arts Festival (MYAF) in May. This is among the highest honors a choir can receive in Michigan, and the fifth consecutive year that a Rockford choir has been so honored.

A further 11 soloists and four small ensembles participated from Rockford and all received Superior, Excellent, or Good ratings. The performers were: Hannah Fawcett (11), Delaney Good (10), Samantha Harrell (11), Eve Hillman (10), Rachel Kreager (10), Spencer Kruse (11), McKenna Olenzuk (11), Katherine Parker (9), Kevin Sinclair (11), Anna Wilson (11), Harrison Witt (9), Fawcett/Fehsenfeld Duet, Hillman/Kreager Duet, Women’s Chorus Quartet, and Rockford Women’s Quintet. All qualified for State Solo & Ensemble by achieving Excellent or Superior ratings at District Solo & Ensemble in February.
