Jackson students selected for state honor choir program
(05/18/2023) Each academic year, the American Choral Directors Association of Minnesota (ACDA-MN) selects a special honor choir. The mission of this program is to provide enriched singing opportunities for students in middle school.
Eleven students from Jackson Middle School - A Specialty School for Math and Science and three students from Anoka Middle School for the Arts were named members of the 2023 ACDA-MN State Honor Choir program.
Sixth graders performed with the All-State Choir on April 29 at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church in Mahtomedi, Minn. Seventh and eighth graders performed with the All-State Choir on May 6 at the same location.
This opportunity is open to all students who want to audition. The students worked before and after school hours to prepare their music for the event. More than 2,400 students audition each year for placement into the honor choir program with over 950 selected.
