Choir students and seniors Kayla Gorenstein and Megan Shoaf were nominated to represent the Oak Park choir program in the annual Southern California Vocal Association’s High School Honor Choir Concert Nov. 27.

Gorenstein and Shoaf were among 270 choir members selected from approximately 650 applicants to sing in the Women’s Honor Choir, led by conductor Angel Vazquez-Romas.

“I didn’t expect to get in with the amount of talented people trying out, but I’m so glad I did because it truly been one of the best experiences I have had all night,” Gorenstein said.

After the concert — which was held at the University of Redlands Memorial Chapel — both Gorenstein and Shoaf were selected to participate in the 2016 California All-State Choir in February.

“I’m super pumped for State and definitely plan to continue doing the Honor Choir for future years and can’t wait to see all my new friends at state,” Shoaf said.
