Isabel Grafel

November 10, 2018

Eight high school students will represent Decatur Community High School at the Northwest Kansas Music Teachers Association Concert on December 8 in Hays. Two Oberlin vocalists and six musicians were selected.

Vocalists selected were senior Danielle Rouse and freshman Malia Bishop.

Musicians include seniors Faith Meitl on trumpet, Jean Soderlund and Cindy Sheaffer on clarinet, Isabel Grafel on French horn, Alex Hayward on trombone, and freshman Logan Hayward on percussion. 

The audition processes for band and vocal are very different. Hopeful band members must record an excerpt from a selected piece along with the chromatic scale. Their recordings are then judged by band directors who do not have students auditioning on that certain instrument. 

Singers audition live, but they are automatically considered for All-State Honor Choir. 

Instrumental director is Devin Carey.  Kathryn Haffner is the vocal director.
