YAKIMA- Five fifth graders from Washington Elementary School have been chosen for the Washington Music Educators Association All State Junior Youth Choir.

The choir is made up of about 150 fifth and sixth grade students representing schools from around the state. The five Washington students are:

  • Eleanor Birks
  • Delilah Cabrera
  • Benjamin Madson
  • Maren Stuber
  • Nene Van Winkle

Washington music teacher Amy Kerker submitted audition audio for the students.

“I’m very excited for them because this is a great honor to perform in such a high level choirs,” says Kerker. “This is how I got my start in Pennsylvania, performing in the the PMA festivals. It was the highlight of my year to get to go and perform with those talented kids. I’m hoping this experience will be the same for them.”

The five will perform with All State Choirs in Yakima on Saturday, February 17, 2018.
