The Lee’s Summit North High School Men’s Choir was recently selected to perform at the prestigious Missouri Music Educators Association conference, scheduled for Jan. 22-25 at the Tan-Tar-A resort in Osage Beach.
The group will present a pre-MMEA concert Jan. 21 at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, Pierson Auditorium, which is located in the Atterbury Student Success Center at 5000 Holmes, Kansas City.
The UMKC event is open to the public, and begins at 7:30 p.m.
The LSNHS Men’s Choir is directed by Steven Perry and Jonathan Krinke. The group’s MMEA performance is scheduled at 11:15 a.m. at Tan-Tar-A, Salon C.
A total of 10 choirs from Missouri elementary and secondary schools, and universities were selected.
The LSNHS Men’s Choir was the only men’s choir selected. Performing groups were selected through a “blind” audition with a panel of judges reviewing recordings without knowing the names of the groups, the schools or the directors’ names.
More than 160 applications were reviewed this year.
