The Duncan Banner
Fourteen vocalists from Duncan High School and Duncan Middle School were selected for the 2013 Southwest Oklahoma All-Region Honor Choir.
The ninth grade students participated in the Junior High Choir while 10th, 11th and 12th-grade students were in the Senior High Choir.
The group had 200 students in each choir. The students were chosen from schools located in southwest Oklahoma. The choirs met in Lawton on Oct. 14 at the First Baptist Church for a full day of rehearsals.
The choirs then performed a concert that night directed by Charlotte Gagliardi Oates, former Lawton High School choral director, and Tony Gonzalez, Norman North High School choral director.
Duncan High School students selected for the choir were Alyssa Flesher, Chloe Harrison, Tyler Mitcham, Sam Moffatt, Ross Pipkin, Bridgett Tolle, Kennedy Villalon, and Sage White; also three-year All Region Choir members: Jill Baker, Hudson Moore, and Sydney Henricks. Freshmen chosen were Rebekah Kafer and Emma Thomas. Eighth grader Mackenzie Cook was also selected.
The Duncan High School vocal music is under the direction of Kevin Zinn and the Duncan Middle School teacher is Debbie Fair.
