Director of Choirs Katherine Kouns sends an email to Jeff Worrell, a member of the Chamber of Commerce on March 7 in her office. The email was in regards to possible promotion of Select Sound’s Ear Candy concert, which will take place two days after they return from Washington D.C.

The choirs finished auditions in the first week of March, and now the three choir directors, Katherine Kouns, Kyle Barker and Sam Chenoweth, are working to place the students who auditioned into the choirs that the directors feel are the best fit. Choir placements will be announced the week of March 24 to 29.

The choirs are also preparing new music for the spring concert, which is May 16.

“I actually really like the music that we’re doing for the spring concert. It’s a bit more peppy than previous concerts,” Lindsay Vrobel, Rhapsody member and sophomore, said. “I’m looking forward to the spring concert, but it’ll be bittersweet since it’s the last concert of the year so we won’t be able to perform with the same group of people ever again.”

Additionally, the Select Sound will be traveling to Washington D.C. the week after spring break to perform at Arlington National Cemetery and around Washington D.C.

“The performance at Arlington is in conjunction with something called the National Festival of the States, where they’re the choir representing Indiana. They’re also performing at the 75th anniversary of the D-Day Invasion of Normandy,” Kouns said.
