Sun Valley Sophomore selected for All State Choir

Congratulations to Sun Valley Sophomore Jacqueline Scheck on being selected for the prestigious PMEA All State Choir.  Jacqueline was previously selected to participate in the PMEA District and Region Choir festivals.  During her participation in the Region Choir, Jacqueline auditioned and was selected for the PMEA All State Choir Festival taking place in Hershey, Pa.,  Wednesday March 30 through Saturday April 2.


Jacqueline is one out of only six altos selected from the Region Choir to perform in the elite All State Choir. Mr. Ryan Beeken, Director of Choral Studies at Indiana University of Pennsylvania will be directing this year’s All Sate Choir, which will perform a concert at the Great American Hall, Hershey Lodge and Convention Center at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 2.


“I am very thankful to have been able to have this wonderful experience,” stated Jacqueline.  “To work on exciting and challenging pieces of music and with such accomplished directors is something I will never forget.”


Jacqueline's choral teacher at Sun Valley, Mrs. Nicole Moyer noted, "I am so proud of Jacqueline. She has worked very hard to make it through the PMEA Festivals. It is a great accomplishment to make the All State Choir, especially as a sophomore. Most students attending the State Festival tend to be upperclassmen." 
Jacqueline will have one more audition on March 30 to see if she will be eligible to move on to Nationals in November 2016.
