On April 29th, the Lowell High School Choir managed an incredible 2nd-place finish in the 2A/1A State Finals, held at Oregon State University. In a division long dominated by private schools, this was the highest finish by any public school in State history!
The Devils impressed with an advanced set of all a capella selections on stage, and even managed to score well in the daunting “sight-reading” portion to secure the record-breaking finish. “I can’t overstate how huge this is,” says Music Director Paul Burch. “The private schools absolutely dominate in Choir. Our kids pulled off an incredible and historic feat here, a true triumph by the underdogs. What an incredible gift it’s been to work with this special group — I’ll never forget them!”
