Norfleet Elementary Student Selected for State Children’s Choir

Norfleet Elementary student Amelia Collins was selected to the Missouri Music Educators Association (MMEA) 2020 Missouri All-State Children’s Choir.

This is the inaugural year for the children’s choir, which features fourth and fifth grade students from around the state.

As part of the audition process, Collins had to submit a recording of Happy Birthday without any background music.

Collins will perform with the choir on January 22, 2020 at the Missouri Music Educators Association conference held at Lake of the Ozarks. The choir will be directed by Joshua Pedde, artistic director of the Indianapolis Children’s Choir.

The Norfleet Elementary music program is under the direction of Amanda Brown. Brown is also co-director of the Raytown School District’s Elementary Chorus.
