All-State Choir Selections

Congratulations to Emily Marrs and Charlotte Movizzo on their accomplishment of being selected for the 2015 Colorado All-State Choirs. Emily has been selected for the All-State Women's Choir.  She will have the opportunity to sing under the direction of Dr. Sandra Snow.  Dr. Snow holds conducting and music education appointments at Michigan State University and is one of the most sought-after conductors in the country. 
Charlotte has been selected for the All-State Mixed Choir. She will be singing under the direction of Dr. Jeffery Douma, a Professor of Conducting at Yale University and the founding conductor of Yale Choral Artists, one of the best professional choirs in the country. Charlotte will have a very unique experience as the All-State Mixed Choir is performing one of Ponderosa Choir Teacher Tim Tharaldson's compositions.  Great job Emily and Charlotte!
