• Welcome to the Parker Vocal Music Department! During the 2017-2018 school year, we saw a huge amount of growth, both in class, and outside for extracurriculars. Our highlights include:

    • Quartet representing Parker at the South Dakota HS All-State Chorus 
    • 7 students representing Parker at the BEC Regional HS Honor Choir (including our own 4-year participant)
    • Representation of Parker at the Region I HS Vocal Solo/Ensemble Contest
      • 5 Division II (excellent) ratings
      • 4 Division I (superior) ratings 
    • Junior High School Choir earned a Division II (excellent) rating at the JH Large Group Contest in Beresford
    • High School Concert Choir earned straight Division I (superior) ratings at the Region I Large Group Contest in Vermillion
    • 3 students represented Parker Elementary School at the Elementary All-State Honor Choir festival
      • We, again, had 3 students selected for this festival to be held this October 
    • 1 student was selected and participated (for the first time in Parker history) in the SD Junior High School Honor Choir festival

    As of now, we have 64 students in the high school concert choir (the largest number of choral students in recent years), and 36 students in the junior high school choir. All students and I are looking forward to another exciting year of making music together! Go Pheasants!
