High school students from all over South Georgia had the opportunity to attend the annual ABAC Choral Day. This event allows high school students to have a better understanding of what it’s like performing music of a college level, while also allowing them to see how it’s like to sing with a larger choir. Every year, a music director is invited to direct the students who attend. Larry Wyatt, a professional choral director at the University of South Carolina, was this year’s guest of honor.
The all-day event started with the arriving students meeting in the Howard Auditorium, where they would begin the first of many rehearsals to be held throughout the afternoon. The high school students were able to take a break from their hard work rehearsing and enjoy a performance by the ABAC choir. The afternoon concluded with a final session where Wyatt would make the final corrections to the songs the students had been working on all day.
Wyatt thanked everyone and ended the evening by telling all choirs how wonderful he believed they sounded. The schools that participated were Cook County, Crisp County, Fitzgerald, Lee County, Tift County, Wilcox County, and Worth County.
