Lincoln Singers Audition for Opus!
Twenty seven 5th and 6th grade students auditioned for a state wide honor choir called Opus. To audition, students sang a major scale, America, and an Italian piece called La Danza (that they actually sang in Italian!). Approximately 1,000 5/6 students around the state of Iowa audition for this group and only 180 are selected. Not very good odds but our students were good sports and understood that in order to improve at something you sometimes need to take risks, work hard, and just go for it! We are very proud of all our Opus students and especially excited for 5th graders Gabby Bamford, Talisa Rodriquez, and 6th graders Lucy Dunning, Kaydee Hayes, Ursula Hakanson, Henry Rouw, Davis Schmidt, and Devon VanDyke. A special honor went to Henry Rouw as he was selected as a solo finalist and will audition for a solo when he attends the festival.
