Congratulations to J.D. Myers and Devin Schleimer, seniors here at Midview High School who were selected for the 2012 Ohio Music Education Association All-State Choir. J.D. and Devin were selected from a field of several hundred applicants from around the state who submitted audition CDs. As a part of the All-State experience, Devin travelled to Columbus on February 15th to rehearse with the All-State Choir, which is a group of 140 singers, and this year’s guest conductor, David Rayl. They rehearsed Wednesday and Thursday, all day and then in the morning of Friday, February 17 in preparation for their concert at the OMEA Professional Development Conference. Mr. Rayl is the Director of Choral Programs at Michigan State University where he directs the University Chorale and is the associate dean of research and graduate studies. The culmination of the experience was the concert on February 17th at the Columbus Convention Center as part of the OMEA state professional development conference. The concert was the highlight of the conference and the choir was one of the best All-State Choirs that have performed at the conference over the past 30 years.
