Congratulations to the Ridgeland High School Concert Choir who traveled this past weekend to Chicago, Illinois to compete in a national competition hosted by Heritage Performance Groups.
The RHS Concert Choir was awarded 1ST PLACE in the Concert Choir 2A/3A division. They received ALL-SUPERIOR scores from the 3 collegiate-level judges, warranting a Gold Award.
Because of their all superior scores (Gold Award), the RHS Concert Choir has been INVITED to perform at Heritage Performance Groups’ Festival of Gold in CARNEGIE HALL during the 2016-2017 school year.
