Faith Lutheran School high school junior Elizabeth Crawford of Plano was recently selected to participate in the National High School Honor Choir at Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska.
Crawford was one of 120 talented high school singers chosen from more than 170 students across the country who auditioned to be in this prestigious group.
“It is always a great pleasure to see our dedicated and talented students recognized,” said Faith Lutheran School Headmaster Rev. Stephen W. Kieser. “We are very proud of Elizabeth and her accomplishments.”
Crawford and other honor choir members experienced extensive rehearsal on the Concordia University – Nebraska campus on Friday, November 4 with the university’s renowned music department chair Dr. Kurt Von Kampen and guest clinicians Michael Palomaki and Paul von Kampen. Both guest clinicians are Concordia Nebraska alumni. Rehearsals culminated with a late afternoon concert at St. John Lutheran Church in Seward, Nebraska the same day. This concert also featured the university’s popular A Cappella Choir, which includes three Faith Lutheran School alumni, Aaron Cumming of Allen, John Merritt of Plano and Nathan Kieser of Wylie.
