On Saturday, April 23rd members of DeForest Area High School’s Camerata and Bella Voce Choirs participated in the WorldStrides OnStage Festival in Chicago, Illinois.
The DAHS group was the only school to register in the 2A-Medium Sized School division, so they were moved up to the 3A-Large School division and, therefore, completed against larger schools.
Camerata received Second Place-Silver Rating in the 3A Concert Choir Division. Bella Voce won the 3A Women’s Choir Division earning a First Place-Gold Rating. As such, Bella Voce was also invited to perform for The Festival of Gold in 2017.
“This is quite an accomplishment for these students. As their teacher I could not be more proud of the work they have put in to receive these honors,” said Maggie Condon, DAHS Choral Music Teacher.
