Three WCHS students chosen for ACDA honor choir
Three freshman students from Woodford County High School were selected to perform in the junior high honor choir of the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) southern division.
Many schools in the 11-state division didn’t have any students chosen for the ACDA Junior Honor Choir, so Brodie Blair said, “It was a huge deal that we got into this.”
He represented WCHS alongside Hudson Pittman and McKenna Hewett, who were just as excited about their selection.
The trio shares a passion for singing.
“It just let’s you be yourself … You can express that through music,” said McKenna. She hopes to become a singer/song writer, so she embraces every vocal performance experience.
Hudson just wants to continue her life’s passion.
“I’ve always loved singing ever since I was little, and I was not particularly good at it,” she said. “But as my voice has been developing I have improved, and I wanted to test myself…”
Brodie has been singing in front of audiences since fourth grade, and always knew he wanted to sing. He viewed this experience as an opportunity to strengthen his singing for musical theater and other vocal performances.
Over 1,000 students (grades 7 through 9) auditioned for the ACDA Junior Honor Choir, which performed a concert in Louisville. “It was a huge honor that (our students) were selected with so much competition from around the southeast,” said Cooper Schrimsher, director of choirs at Woodford County High School.
