Music Memories from 2013-2014

East Choristers @ Music in the Parks Six Flags Great America
The choristers had a great time in Illinois on 5/17 for the Music in the Parks Competition. Six Flags was a blast, as well. ​Five Choristers flew on the Dare Devil Dive! In our performance, we received an excellent rating. However, we were .2 (two-tenths) of a point short of a superior rating at 89.3. This is the third highest score in chorister history! One of the judges gave us a superior rating. One of our singers won the best vocal soloist award over all middle school soloists! Remember, all of the other choirs are regular classes that meet several times a week! Also, out of all 12 choirs (11 middle school), we placed 4th! EAST OAKVIEW ROCKS! 
What a great day. Thanks​ to our​ awesome ​parents and administration​ supporting the chorister program since it's inception in 2001.
