Saint Peter High School had 16 students participate in the Gustavus Honor Choir Festival on Monday, May 2nd which included them learning four songs.
The Gustavus Honor Choir Festival brought together outstanding singers and fine choral repertoire in an exciting one-day experience. Students refined their musical skills through engaging choir rehearsals, faculty-led masterclasses, and had a special opportunity to learn from nationally recognized guest artist, Dr. Jeffery Ames. “The students worked with Dr. Brandon Dean and Dr. Elisabeth Cherland from Gustavus, and two of the pieces were written by Dr. Jeffrey Ames who they brought in to be the guest conductor,” SPHS Choir Director Brianna Bergstrom said. “They finished with an evening concert at Christ Chapel on Gustavus Campus that featured not only the honor choir, but a featured high school choir from St. Michael-Albertville and the Gustavus Choir. It was an awesome day!” Those SPHS students participating at the Gustavus Honor Choir Festival included: Olivia Seys, Sarah Haggenmiller, Eleanor Hughes, Emmalyn Hastings, Max Bultman, Alexia Wentworth, Afrah Daidzic, Aamista Weaver, Meghan Sikkema, Sophia Ruffing, Melanie Hopp, Abby Kukacka, Nibraas Sayidnour, Sam Stuewe, Jaydon Thompson, and Symon Schott.
