Representing Elk Lake are Molly Copeland, Soprano I; Erin Smurkowski, Alto I; Virginia Wilmarth, Alto II; Tim Jones, Bass I; Matt Wallikas, Bass I; and Josh Wood, Tenor I as a second alternate.
Students representing ELK Lake in District 9 Chorus (l-r) are: Josh Wood, Virginia Wilmarth, Tim Jones, Molly Copeland, Matt Wallikas.
Mrs. Barbara Holbert, choral director, notes that this is a tremendous representation for Elk Lake. “We are very proud of all the students who auditioned this year. They had an exceptional audition. All the students who auditioned are underclassmen and students who were not accepted this year have another opportunity next year. I’m so pleased that Elk Lake will have six representatives at district chorus in February.”
