Last night I picked up my daughter from the Willmar Senior High school at 10 p.m. after she returned from a choir competition in Waconia.
As I watched the students exit the buses, I couldn't help but think of how lucky we are to have such an exceptional music program in the Willmar School District. It required six very large buses to transport all of the choir kids to the competition.
With all of the class choices and other extracurricular activities that are offered, it is certainly a tribute to the choir directors to see the high number of students that elect to participate in the music program.
If you have never attended a high school concert, I would highly recommend it. And if you have the chance to say thank you to any of the music directors, please do, because they are obviously doing something right!
