They will travel to Kansas City from Feb. 26 to March 3, 2019, where they will perform with some of the finest singers from across the country. The trip will culminate with a concert at the ACDA National Convention for over 3,000 choral professionals from across the world “and work with some of the finest clinicians our profession has to offer,” said Rutherford County fine arts coordinator Lindsay Halford.
Brian Russell is the choir director at Stewarts Creek High School, while Seth Gregory is the middle school choir director and Tara Hutson is a music teacher at the elementary school.
