Nine Sycamore Middle School 6th grade choir students have been selected to participate in the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) Illinois State Honor Choir at their Fall Convention in October. ACDA is a nonprofit music-education organization whose goals outline the association’s dedication to the advancement of choral music. The association members are strong advocates for music in the schools and provide honors and enrichment opportunities, like this festival choir, for students.
On October 28, the invited Sycamore students will attend the convention at the College of DuPage and join other students from across the state in rehearsals with noted choral conductor, Emily Ellsworth, before performing a concert that afternoon. Congratulations to HatieJane Alexander, Sofia DasNeves, Lilly Faulhaber, Aurora Hilligoss, Liliana Jennings, Gabriel Jovanovich, Layla Musich, Kyla Prather, and Laynee Sosin! Everyone is proud of their accomplishments and representation of Sycamore Middle School and Sycamore Community School District #427.
