SSE Students Selected for National Children's Choir

November 18, 2019

Blaine and Bella Sycamore Springs Elementary students Blaine Lovett and Bella Reed have been selected for the National OAKE Children's Choir. The national organizations selects four choirs: children's youth and two high school choirs; Blaine and Bella will be members of the children's Choir. They will travel to Portland, Oregon, in March to work with world-renowned clinicians and perform with children from across the United States. The selection process consisted of submitted four different vocal segments, including "vocalise" warm-up exercises, an example of the student signing a part in a medley, and an unaccompanied a cappella performance. Blaine and Bella are fifth-graders at SSE and are members of the "Tiger Singers." This is the first time that a DSISD student has been selected for this honor.
