  • Rhs Choir Takes Top Honors At State Choir Festival
    The Russellville High School Choir groups recently competed in the Choral Performance Assessment and State Festival at the University of Central Arkansas, where they received five Best in Class Recipient Awards for the state 6A division.

    Each group scored a Division I Superior ranking, which represents the finest possible performance for the event and the class of participants being adjudicated, and had to receive a composite score of 90-100. The Chamber Choir group and Cantate group competed in the Large Chorus Division, which includes 35 or more singers. The Chamber Choir was named the Best Mixed Chorus Large and Cantate Choir was named the Best Female Chorus Large. The Cantate group also received the Best Overall Chorus Large by scoring one more point than Chamber Choir. The Chromatic group competed in the Ensemble Division, which includes 18 or fewer singers. They were named the Best Mixed Ensemble Large and the Best Overall Ensemble.

    “This is the best showing that Russellville High School has had at the State Choir Festival,” said Matt Foy, RHS Choir Instructor. “I am very proud of the hard work that the choir has put in this year. This is by far one of the hardest working groups that I have had in recent years, and that hard work really showed during the competition.”
