April has been an outstanding month for the music department at Westside Christian High School. The Concert Choir competed at the OSAA 3A 2019 State Choir Championship at Oregon State University on April 29th. Under the direction of Mr.Will Fox, the choir won its 13th consecutive State Championship. This was a huge win as schools from the coast, southern and eastern Oregon competed. Thank you to all those who went to Corvallis to support these State Champion vocalists.
The Concert Band also qualified for the Oregon State 3A band championships this last month. With their highest qualifying scores to date, the band is positioned well to defend its state championship. Mr. Fox is very proud of the 13 students this year who make up the band-nine horn players and four percussionists. They will compete on Wednesday, May 8th at the LaSells Stewart Center on the campus of Oregon State University.
