On Saturday October 28th The Royal High School Chamber Choir participated in the Washington State University Educational Choral Festival in Pullman, WA. The WSU School of Music sponsors the annual event each Fall to excite, encourage, and educate students, developing a spirit of camaraderie and commitment. Each participating choir has the opportunity to perform in Kimbrough Concert Hall and work exclusively with WSU choral professors. Singers are encouraged to try new ideas, work towards high musical standards and towards their goals.
At the conclusion of the festival, students are treated to performances by the WSU choirs as well as encore performances from the top four participating choirs, chosen by the choral faculty of WSU. The RHS Chamber Choir has participated in this event for the past five years and have always performed well, however for the first time, the RHS Chamber Choir was selected as one of the top four choirs and had the opportunity to perform again for an auditorium filled with students from schools all over Washington and Idaho as well as the music faculty of WSU. Also selected were Rogers HS from Spokane, Moses Lake HS, and Lindberg HS from Renton. Being recognized as a high performing group was a great honor and the Chamber Choir students represented Royal High School incredibly well.
