Algona students in honor choir

ALGONA – Eight Algona Middle School students were selected to participate in the fifth- and sixth-grade North Central District Honor Choir held at North Iowa Area Community College in Mason City on Feb. 25. The Iowa Choral Directors Association sponsored the event.

Selected for this event were fifth-graders Jacob Adams, Alex Berhow, Caleb Hommez and Hannah Joyce; and sixth graders Samuel Solbach, Kylie Weier, Shelby Weier and Annalisa Wolf.

Students spent weeks preparing six selections at Algona Middle School before traveling to Mason City to work with more than 300 other fifth- and sixth-graders from north central Iowa. Singers rehearsed during the afternoon and showcased their music at a 7 p.m. concert in the NIACC auditorium.
