By Jade Allen, staff writer

The 2017 PMEA (Pennsylvania Music Educators Association) Region Chorus was held at Freeport High School on Feb. 23-25. This year’s participants were seniors Emily Burger and Jesse Stewart. Burger advanced on soprano 1 and Stewart advanced on tenor 2. They were accompanied by Mrs. Susan James.

The musical selections of this years Region Chorus were: “Miniyama Nayo,” “Beati Qurum Via,” “Dixit Dominus,” “Pure Imagination,” “Praise The Name of God With A Song,” “I See The Heaven’s Glories Shine,” “I Am His Child,” “For the Fallen,” “Sing As One,” and “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

The guest director for the concert was Dr. Ryan Beeken from Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP). “It was a great experience to have Dr. Beeken conduct the concert because I got to talk to him about joining the choir at IUP and got to know him a little better.” said Stewart, who will be attending IUP in the fall for a degree in music education.

After the audition process, the chair placements and results were announced. Emily Burger placed seventh chair on soprano 1 and Jesse Stewart received fifteenth chair on tenor 2. The top four chairs in each section move on to states.
