Kayhi music teacher Trina Elliott is having a busy year. She just returned from Craig where she accompanied 9 of her choir students who were selected to participate in the annual SE Honor Festival. This week Ms. Elliott will accompany 6 students as they participate in the All State Honor Choir in Anchorage from Nov 15-17. Seniors Coleman Alguire, Forrest Allred, Samantha MacNeith and April Souza along with Juniors Victoria Clary and Elliott Jacksch will join over 200 students from around the State Of Alaska for this event. These outstanding musicians were selected from approximately 1000 students who submitted audition tapes.
In February Ms. Elliott will travel to Vancouver, BC with Forrest Allred, Elliott Jacksch and Samantha MacNeith for the All NW Music Festival. This event draws participates from AK, WA, OR, ID, MT and WY with over 2 thousand students applying for an available spot in either the mixed or women s choir. The fact that for two years running Ms. Elliott has had students selected to participate speaks volumes for the wonderful music program available at Kayhi and the exceptional teacher we have.

Congratulations to all those selected and have a wonderful time in Anchorage. And a huge THANK YOU to everyone who helped support the choir by purchasing pizza s prepared by our exceptional chief, Mr. Doug Edwards. His support of the all the school activates through fund raising makes it all possible.
