12/1/17 –  Several Howell Public Schools students will perform with various State Honors Choirs and Bands at the Michigan Music Conference January 25 - 27 in Grand Rapids. Performing with one of these groups is one of the highest honors a vocal or instrumental student can receive.

From Parker Middle School, Audrey Davey, Kendall Derocher,  Aubrey Nemeth, Kirsten Patterson and Noah Walter will perform with the Michigan School Vocal Music Association (MSVMA) Soprano Alto (SA) State Honors Choir. Additionally, Lola Dombrowski, Hailey Douglas and Ally Johnson will perform with MSVMA Soprano 1, Soprano 2 and Alto (SSA) State Honors Choir.

“Earning a spot with one of the MSVMA State Honors choirs is one of the highest honors a vocal music student can receive. To have so many signers selected to participate in the choirs showcases the outstanding vocal music programs offered at Howell Public Schools,” said Kelli Falls, Parker Middle School vocal music instructor.   

Following a statewide blind audition process involving hundreds of students, Howell High School senior John Tucker was selected as the sixth chair clarinet in the Michigan School Band and Orchestra Association (MSBOA) All-State Band.

“This is a huge honor for John. Auditioning for a seat with the MSBOA All-State Band is a very competitive process. Hundreds and hundreds of students from all over Michigan take part in blind auditions hoping to earn the opportunity to perform with the band,” said Jason Smigell, Howell High School director of bands.

The purpose of the Michigan Music Conference is to provide relevant professional development and vibrant musical experiences that support music education for educators and their students.
