Choir members

Choir director Louann Dierkhising congratulates the Park Rapids Area High School vocalists on their 2012-2013 section contest results.

In addition to the pictured results on superior (double star – highest rating) and excellent (second highest of four areas) scores given, four of the soloists were awarded Best of Site recognition, and four of the seven Best of Sites at the ensemble contest were given to Park Rapids vocal entries.

The ensembles that were awarded Best of Site were the senior girls group singing “ Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man,” the duet of Mariena Dearstyne and Mady Griffith, men’s ensemble’s “Where the Girls Are” medley, and Chamber girls ensemble, “ He’s Gone Away.” The music adjudicators had many positive comments for the soloists and ensembles.

“Park Rapids students represented our school and music department well. Kudos to all students who participated,” Dierkhising said.
