The vocalists totaled 117 and hailed from Brockington Elementary Magnet School, Brunson-Dargan Elementary School, Carolina Elementary School, North Hartsville Elementary School, Rosenwald Elementary/Middle School, Spaulding Elementary School, St. John’s Elementary School, Thornwell School for the Arts and West Hartsville Elementary School.

Dr. Eddie Ingram, DCSD superintendent, marveled at another successful performance.

“I’m continuously amazed at how talented our young people are,” Ingram said. “There’s nothing sweeter than the sound of young voices singing in unison. I applaud the students and faculty for their hard work.”

Marisa Johnson, DCSD’s Arts and Innovative Programs coordinator, said the district was proud to have such a large group of students in the district wide choir.

“We are ecstatic to have this many students participating in the Second Annual District Elementary Honor Choir,” Johnson said. “They represented their schools very well, and our music teachers are to be commended.”

Kim Roberts, Hartsville Middle’s choral director, served as the choir’s clinician. Ashley Long, a music teacher at St. John’s Elementary, was the accompanist.
