From the very first rehearsal, it was clear that this was going to be a concert to remember.

More than 170 of the top youth singers from the western United States met in Santa Barbara to serve as this year’s American Choral Directors Association’s (ACDA) junior high honor choir, including four students from Rancho Pico Junior High School.

Seventh graders, Iris Garcia and Annika Stevenson, and eighth graders, Kyu Hun Han and Brian You, were selected from more than 900 junior high school students who auditioned to join the honor choir.

The young singers spent nearly 16 hours over three days rehearsing with Dr. Rollo Dilworth, world-renowned choral director and professor at Temple University’s Boyer College of Music and Dance in Philadelphia.

Dilworth’s leadership, combined with the singers’ talent and dedication, led up to a concert that concluded the ACDA’s western conference in Santa Barbara.

Every one of the historic Granada Theater’s 1,500 seats was filled.

“I am so proud of our students,” said Rancho Pico Choir Teacher Molly Peters. “Their love of music and commitment to working hard really paid off with a very powerful and professional concert.”
