A mix-up at a music festival made victory even sweeter for Summit Christian Academy’s Junior High Choir, which took first place in the Senior High Choir II Division at the Worlds of Fun Festival of Music.
“When we learned we would be competing in the high school division, we made peace with not winning, as we were entered into that category by mistake,” said Secondary Choir Director Trissa Lucht. “We are so excited and honored to have won against students up to four years older than us.”
The choir won in the category of schools with 751 to 1,000 students.
The Missouri State High School Activities Association accredits the Festival of Music for school choir, band and orchestra participation.
