LM singers readying for spring shows

Posted on: April 13, 2016

In just a few short weeks, a select group of Little Miami vocalists will be journeying to the Eternal City, but before they go, those of us without a passport can enjoy some of these heavenly voices closer to home.

Although they are practicing diligently for a trip to Rome this summer, the Little Miami Select Mixed Choir and Select Women’s Chorale will take time out to perform at the Little Miami Fine Arts Festival on Saturday, Apr. 23 at 11:30 a.m. at the high school.

The groups will be singing some of the same music that recently won them superior ratings at the Ohio Music Educators Association’s Large Group Adjudicated Event last month. The groups’ ratings earned them each a place in the OMEA state competition on Friday, Apr. 29, a significant honor for LM’s vocal music program.

These students have other scheduled performances this spring as tune-ups for their participation in a musical tour of Europe, beginning with performances at the Musica Eterna Roma International Choir Festival and Competition July 1-5, and finishing with stops in Austria and Germany through July 10.
