Keota sends four to honor choir

It was quite the busy Tuesday for four of Jane Edwards’ high school choir members as they joined other talented singers from across the South Iowa Cedar League (SICL) for a Honor Choir at Colfax-Mingo High School.

Anna Ackerman-Axume, Jaydin Boer, Taylor Conrad, and Anna Duwa took time out of their busy schedules to participate this year, with Edwards taking whoever wants to go. Though conflicts such as basketball and family life prevent most students from being able to participate, Edwards worked with her students to prepare them for the concert.

“It gives the kids a great opportunity to work on hard music with a BIG group and with a new director,” Edwards said. “It also is a chance for kids in the SICL to work together instead of trying to beat each other at a game.”
