Katherine Paseman, Gr. 8, has been selected as a member of this year’s Organization of American Kodaly Educators’ (OAKE) National Youth Choir. The OAKE National Youth Choir is one of three honor choirs that perform at the annual OAKE national conference. This year’s conference will be held in Dallas, Texas, in March. Those selected must audition via a recording, then a selection committee from OAKE goes through recordings from throughout the nation and selects about 150 members for this special ensemble. Paseman is the only middle school student selected from Crystal Choir to attend this Honor Youth Choir.
