St. Mary's Choir Earns Excellence Rating During Music in the Parks

St. Mary's Choir traveled to Williamsburg, Va. to compete in the Music in the Parks at Busch Gardens on April 20.
Led by Director of Music & Art Department Chair Dr. Francis Yun, 15 students performed two songs, “O Magnum Mysterium” by Evan Ramos and “When Dreams Take Flight” by Rollo Dilworth, in the women’s choir category. Based on their performance, the panel of judges awarded them a rating of “excellent.” 

Following their performance, the students enjoyed a fun day at Busch Gardens, a European-themed adventure park.

As described on its website, Music In the Parks “is an educationally-focused music festival that provides school performing ensembles the opportunity to learn from exceptional conductors in the field of music education today.” Ensembles from all over the country and Canada compete in this festival.
