Colfax Students Perform in Choir of 1,200 Singers

Five Colfax High School seniors performed with a select choir of singers from Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, and Minnesota January 13-14.

Seniors Reed Gibson, Sara Schmock, Delanie Anderson, and Nikiesha Myers, along with junior Heidi Lieffort sang at the annual Dorian Vocal Festival at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. The massed choir was under the direction of Luther College choir directors Dr. Allan Hightower, Dr. Timothy Andrew Last, and Dr. Sandra Peter. In addition to rehearsing and performing with over 1000 singers, the students attended a concert featuring Roseville’s chamber choir and two Luther choirs. The students were accompanied by Carrie Christensen who attended workshops while the students were in rehearsals. Heidi Lieffort had the special opportunity to participate in Dorian’s Chamber Choir, a group of 100 singers from within the choir. Chamber Choir students gathered a day early on Luther’s campus to learn extra music. Colfax music students are now preparing for conference honors choir and solo/ensemble events.
