Honor Choir to perform at WHS

Woodward, Okla. — On Nov. 21 Woodward High School will host talented young vocalists from "nearly 40 to 50 schools" across the region as part of the annual Western Oklahoma Honor Choir Concert.

The concert is sponsored by the Western Oklahoma Choir Director Association.

WHS Choir Director Joy Ware said, "The concert will be held in the Woodward High School auditorium. There will be over 300 students between grades 7 to 12 participating in the concert."

The students will perform in 3 separate choirs, a women's choir for female vocalists, and a junior high mixed and high school mixed choirs, Ware said.  Each choir will perform 4 songs, she said.

"The students participating are from all over Western Oklahoma. We have kids coming in from Enid clear out through the Panhandle all the way down to Weatherford and Elk City, as well as Fargo and Seiling," she said.

Ware said the student vocalists will represent the best of the best from their respective schools.

"The music will be excellent because all these students have had to extensively practice these songs and audition for their parts, so it will be the best from each school performing," she said. "Each choir will be in town rehearsing all day long with their clinician prior to their performances, so they'll be at their best."

The concert starts at 7 p.m. and is free and open to the public.  Ware encourages all to come out to show support for their regional choir programs.
