Mt. Bethel Christian Academy’s 4th and 5th grade Eagle Choir received Superior Ratings in all areas of adjudication for the Georgia Music Educators Association District XII Large Group Performance Evaluation on Feb. 28.
The thirty member choir was judged on tone, pitch, rhythm, ensemble, diction, interpretation, and appearance. The students performed two songs: “Kyrie Eleison,” sung in Greek, by Sonja Poorman and a spiritual, “Marchin’ With the Saints,” by Greg Gilpin.
Each choir member will receive a medal and the school will receive a plaque honoring their achievements.
“I am proud of the students’ hard work and their commitment to the choir,” said Karen Poe, MBCA’s Lower School Music Director. “The students practiced after school in preparation for their performance evaluation."
This is the 6th year that the MBCA choir has earned Superior ratings under the direction of Karen Poe.
