The 36th Kansas State University Summer Choral Institute, sponsored by the Master Teacher Institute for the Arts, took place on the Manhattan campus this past June.
Through a rigorous audition, 41 students are selected from all over the United States to attend this prestigious musical institute. This year’s SCI featured high school students from California, Kansas, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio and Texas. Abbie Lane and Cooper McGuire, both from Gardner, and Trevor Thoelke, of Spring Hill were among the students who attended the institute. Students receive a full scholarship to attend the institute where they participate in university level musical rehearsals, master classes, private applied lessons, recitals and concerts. They also participate in leadership and character building activities including special guest speakers such as Robert DeBruyn and football coach Bill Snyder.
This year, the chorus was a special guest ensemble that performed June 6 at the D-Day Commemoration Ceremony at the Eisenhower Presidential Museum and Library. They presented a concert celebrating freedom, liberty, and peace following war.
