This past week, Feb. 14 through 16, in Athens, Ga., several Decatur High School students joined more than 320 different schools at All-State Chorus.
In addition, out of each school, Decatur sent the second highest number of students from one Georgia school, totaling 42 students.
“Dr. Elise Eskew Sparks works with them on sight singing as part of her [chorus] class curriculum but has also created a day-long workshop open to other schools to help students prepare for the second round of auditions,” Megan Johnson, parent of senior chorus student Scott Johnson, said in a recent press release.
All-State Chorus is an annual weekend in February for 7th through 12th graders. In order to participate in the weekend, students must go through two audition processes and qualify for the program.
“My son has had the privilege of singing all four years in the All-State concert and it has been a great source of learning, fellowship, and joy,” Johnson said.
