Pictured, left to right, are: Josh Haupert, Alexia Gerdes, Libby Peterson (front), Blake Halverson and Kristin Gerhardt of Cherokee Middle School and Washington High School, who were recently selected for participation in the 25th annual Opus Honor Choir Festival.
Over 3,400 students were nominated by their directors for 720 positions in the four Opus Honor Choirs. Selections were made by means of a recorded audition. These students traveled to Ames on Nov. 18, where they rehearsed with their choir and ended the day with a concert featuring all four of the honor choirs. The students are directed of Amy Sarchet.
