Plymouth students chosen for State Honors Music Project

Posted November 6, 2017

Six Plymouth School District students were selected by the State Honors Music Project, which recently culminated in performances in Madison.

This initiative of the Wisconsin State Music Association offers musically talented students the opportunity to rehearse and perform with the nation’s finest conductors in a professional and disciplined setting. Participants are selected after highly competitive auditions requiring students to perform a solo and to demonstrate an ability to sight-read.

At the high-school level, 428 students were selected from the nearly 1,400 who auditioned. Those chosen attended an intensive five-day summer camp at UW-Green Bay in June, then reconvened at the end of October to perform during the Wisconsin State Music Conference in Madison. Representing Plymouth High School were:

  • Logan Schreiber: High School Mixed Choir
  • Samantha Loose: flute, High School Honors Band
  • Keeley Kuru: tenor sax, High School Honors Band

At the middle-school level, about 300 were selected from the nearly 1,000 who auditioned. Participants worked on songs throughout the summer and attended a workshop in October before singing at the Wisconsin State Music Teacher's Convention in Madison. Representing Riverview Middle School were:

  • Katherine Rauscher: soprano, Middle School Honors Choir
  • Jack Steinhardt: tenor, Middle School Honors Choir
  • Davis Suckow: bass, Middle School Honors Choir
