Members of the Dell Rapids High School choir participated in a solo and ensemble contest held at Augustana University on Monday, March 12th. Ten students made the trip to Sioux Falls, and those ten students performed in eight events.
The quartet of Kat Fletcher, Abby Stauffenecker, Jay Holm, and Mitchell Heinemann earned an excellent rating. Alec Saxon and Heinemann earned a superior rating for their duet. More impressive is the fact that Saxon was working on the duet with another student prior to the contest, but that student caught the flu and couldn’t perform. Heinemann sight-sang the piece with Saxon. Fletcher and Mercedes Lodmell earned a superior for their duet. Chloe Fischer and Anna Symens earned an excellent rating for their duet. Stauffenecker and Allison Hegg earned a superior in duet. Lodmell earned a superior for her solo. Peyton Gleason also earned a superior for his solo. Stauffenecker earned an excellent on her solo performance.
