OHS Places Three in All-State Choir

OHS All-District Choir

The Ozark High School choir program featured 30 students who performed with the South Central All-District Honor Choir on Nov. 6. Additionally, auditions were held for All-State Choir for 11th- and 12th-grade students who were ranked in the top-25 in their respective sections across the district. Ozark’s Ilya Kozlov, Hanna McConnell and Kaitlyn Wilson were honored for their performances as they were named to the All-State Choir.

The event, which was held at Central High School in Springfield, brought 400 performers from across the district together for a concert performance as well as the auditions for the All-State Choir. Following All-State auditions, the students were split into two separate choirs – 9th/10th and 11th/12th – and spent all day rehearsing before performing a live concert to close out the day.

“We are so proud of our students and are excited for them to experience singing in such a prestigious ensemble,” said Ozark Assistant Choir Director Connor Gately. “These students come in and give their best every day and we can’t thank them enough for their leadership.”

The All-State Choir is made up of 200 of the top 11th- and 12th-grade singers in the state as the honorees will go on to perform at the Missouri Music Educators Association conference in January.
