Eight students from Newton Middle School were chosen to participate in the Middle School Honor Choir sponsored by the Colorado affiliate of the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) during the 2017 Colorado conference. Newton’s Kylie B., Leah C., Megan G., Kiran K., Michael K., J.C. M., Maxwell S. and Ella W. were among the 100 students from around the state who had the opportunity to work with Dr. Rollo Dilworth—an acclaimed director and composer. Dr. Dilworth is a Professor of Music and Director of Choral Activities and Music Education at the North Park University School of Music in Chicago and also serves as director of the Music Institute of Chicago Children’s Choir. After three days of rehearsals, students performed a concert at Bethany Lutheran Church in Englewood, Colorado.
