Participation numbers swell in Youth Choir programs

The Vashon Island School District has over 80 kids participating in the after school choir this fall!  There are over 50 in the elementary school choir for grades 3-5 and now 30+ in the middle school grades 6-8 choir.  The choirs, under the direction of music teacher, Erynne Smith, perform their own concert in the Spring, and will also perform with Vashon Island Chorale in its 30th Anniversary concert in late April.

VHS Senior, Alivia Jones awarded Vashon Island Chorale Scholarship
The Chorale awarded its annual  scholarship to an impressive VHS graduate, Alivia Jones. Alivia graduated from Vashon Island High School in June 2018 as one of the top ten students in her class. She is attending Pacific Lutheran University this fall and is planning to major in vocal performance. A singer, actress, and language lover, she hopes to one day perform in opera houses around the world. Her experiences with Vashon Island Chorale have helped shape her passion for music and have brought her great joy.

We wish the best to Alivia as she begins his next chapter!
