Paulina Burke, Hailey Hupke, William Karels, and Isaac Sousa have been selected to perform in concert with the 47th South Dakota High School Honor Choir.
Rehearsals are scheduled for July 25 – 30 on the campus of South Dakota State University in Brookings. The culminating concert will be presented on Friday, July 30, in the Oscar Larson Memorial Concert Hall at SDSU.
The choir will be under the direction of Paul Rardin. Rardin is the Elaine Brown Chair of Choral Music and Chair of the Vocal Arts Department at Temple University in Philadelphia.
South Dakota’s honor choir is traditionally an 150-voice choir, but this year only 80 members were chosen due to Covid restrictions. All sophomore and junior chorus members were eligible to audition.
