Sequim choir students get state honors

Seventeen students from Sequim High School and seven from Sequim Middle School were recently selected for the Washington Music Educators Association (WMEA) honors.

SHS students were named to the All-State Choir and SMS students for the Washington Junior All-State Choir.

Students at both levels submitted recorded auditions back in September. Judges at the state level then select the choirs based on the students’ mastery of particular musicianship skills and the quality and range of their voices.

“I am very proud of these students for taking the time to prepare the materials and follow through with the recording process — it takes a great deal of time and commitment,” Sequim choir director John Lorentzen said.

“This is a great showing for a small school district.”

Sequim High School students selected for All-State Choir this fall include (back row, from left) Jax Thaxton, Jonathan Heintz, Adrian Funston, Hannah Hines, Elijah Groves, Angel Wagner, Kenneth Wolfley and Kalli Wiker, (middle row, from left) Eva Lofstrom, Maddy Dietzman, Kariya Johnson, Delaney Nucci, Tyler Goodworth and Keaton King, and (front row, from left) Henry Hughes, Chloe Morton and Espn Judd.
