Also on display were the skills of the music teachers in arranging, accompanying and even choreographing. The communal choir of beginners from Desert Wind Middle School was directed by Andrea Jenkins. Tanya Hobt led the Maricopa Wells Middle School choir. Austin Showen directed and arranged most of the songs performed by the strong Maricopa High School choirs. MHS also honored 10 graduating seniors.

New Maricopa High School Choir Director Lindsay Decoste is doing some great things to build up the choir program at MHS while also supporting the high school’s college and career academic focus. 

Sept. 23, Decoste and four students from the MHS Choir attended the Arizona State University Vocal Connection event on campus at ASU. Throughout the day, students Chloe Seekings, Seneca Abbott, Jacobo Porras and Douglas Moulton participated in several workshops. At the end of the day, they joined their voices with 300 other high school students and learned two new pieces of choral music under renowned conductors Jason Thompson and Bart Evans.

Sept. 25,  the four students taught the rest of the MHS choir what they learned at the workshop. 

“This was a valuable experience for all five of us,” Decoste said.
