The Oakwood High School Symphonic Chorale competed at the State OMEA competition April 26 at Tipp City. The group received superior ratings in sight reading and the overall category.
To qualify for state, the group participated in the district contest in March. At both competitions, the group performed three prepared pieces in front of judges and then also had to sight read a song students had never seen before in front of a judge.
Spotlight on the Arts
Oakwood High School senior Taylor Shineman is being recognized for her art at the state level. Shineman’s oil paining, Fleur Eise, is one of only 300 state winners and will be on display in Columbus this spring in the Ohio Governor’s Youth Art Exhibition.
Along with Shineman, who had two pieces advance, four other OHS students advanced pieces of artwork to the regional and state level judging for the Ohio Governor’s Youth Art Exhibition. Those students were Tori Studebaker, Gabi Stauffer, Megan Weeda and Ella Gould.
