Holston Sends Two Talented Students to All-State Chorus

Two of Holston’s students were selected to attend the 2016 All-VA Chorus.  Jamie A. and Ashelyn W. auditioned on February 20th, at the Sr. All-District Chorus event, and were picked to be part of this prestigious choir.  Both students have been very busy musically this year.  They both were selected and attended the All-County event in October held at Holston HS, and the All-District event held this last weekend at George Wythe HS in Wythe Co.  The All State Chorus will be held in Virginia Beach on April 28th through 30th.  The culminating event will be a concert on Saturday, April 30th at 1:00 PM.

Both Ashelyn and Jamie are seniors this year, and they have been part of Holston’s band and choir all through middle school and high school.  Ashelyn will be attending Emory and Henry College next year.  She has received a scholarship, and plans to go into music education.  Jamie plans to attend VHCC, and then transfer to ETSU.  He would like to go into some aspect of the entertainment industry, probably either in music or film.  Holston High would like to congratulate these two talented students, and wish them all the best in their future endeavors.
