Selected to Opus Honor Choir
Joey Kelley and Josh Meier, ninth-grade students from Fort Dodge Senior High, were recently selected to participate in the 32nd annual Opus Honor Choir.
OPUS Honor Choir is sponsored by the Iowa Choral Director’s Association and aims to identify and bring together the best fifth- through ninth-grade singers from around the state to deliver a meaningful musical experience for each singer.
More than 3,000 students were nominated by their directors for 720 positions in the four Opus Honor Choirs. Selections were made by means of a recorded audition. Auditions included performing music for the choir as well as other technical elements of singing.
This year’s OPUS Honor Choir Festival Concert will take place at CY Stephens Auditorium on the Iowa State University campus at 4:00 p.m. Nov. 16. The director for the ninth-grade mixed chorus is Dr. Matthew Armstrong from Wayne State College.
