The Pride of Iowa Honor Choir was hosted by Southwest Valley in Corning this year. Students from all of the schools in the conference attended to work with a guest director and perform in a concert at the end of the day. Music pieces were selected in advance and students learned them before going to the honor choir. Upon arrival they were placed in their sections among the other students and began rehearsing the songs. They worked as a group and also in sectionals to work out and finesse any problem spots. The guest director was Dr. Adam Zurst from Northwest Missouri State University. He did a great job motivating the students to do their best and put the finishing touches on their songs. The Northwest Missouri State University Celebration ensemble opened the concert which gave the students a wonderful opportunity to hear a college level group. The Pride of Iowa Honor Choir closed the concert with their four songs. The CD students worked hard throughout the day and were great representatives for our school.
