Choirs from Lapeer East and Lapeer West High Schools represented their schools and themselves in an exemplary manner at the Michigan Schools Vocal Music Association festival at the Flint Institute of Music on Tuesday, March 3, 2009.
Two choirs from each school participated in the festival and the Lapeer East Concert Choir was one of nine choirs, out of 43 participating, that was selected for further judging at the State Festival in April.
The East Concert and Treble Choirs received “Excellent” ratings. The Lapeer West Concert Choir received an “Excellent” rating and the West Treble Choir received a “Good.”
Lapeer West’s Concert Choir missed going to the State Festival by just a few points, said West Choir Director Thomas Kaiser.
“They represented themselves and our school very well through not only their performances but their behavior as well,” said East Choir Director Cheryl Burnside.
