  • Middle school students perform

    Anderson County Middle School students involved in band and chorus participated recently in the District Festival.
    Seventh- and eighth-grade students performed at the Oldham County Center for the Arts and presented two selections for adjudication.
    The chorus, accompanied by eighth-grade humanities teacher Ginger Warren, sang “Cantate Hodie” and “The River Sleeps Beneath the Sky,” both by Mary Lynn Lightfoot. Students received proficient-plus ratings from all three judges, which means they were very close to receiving a distinguished rating.
