MDUSD Elementary Honor Choir

This VIDEO (YouTube) is from the MDUSD Elementary Honor Choirs of 2024. Produced and funded from donations from the Mount Diablo Music Education Foundation. Back by popular demand, the 2nd Annual Elementary Honor Choir and Middle School Choir Concert expanded to a larger venue this year to accommodate the large crowd of parents and supporters who gathered to hear their memorable melodies. Sponsored by the Mount Diablo Music Education Foundation (MDMEF) took place in the Concord HS gym on Monday evening and included selected students from 11 elementary school choirs along with students in choirs from Pleasant Hill and Foothill middle schools.

“Mount Diablo Music Education Foundation sponsors this concert by purchasing music for the singers and providing event T-shirts for the elementary students,” said elementary music teacher Bonnie Shea, who helped organize the event. “Many of our MDUSD schools at all levels – elementary, middle, and high school – do not offer a Choir experience for their students. This event serves as one way to bring attention to the benefits of choral singing, encourage more schools to make choral singing available to their students, and to provide a collaborative performing opportunity to our students.”

MDUSD Board President Erin McFerrin and Vice President Linda Mayo attended the concert and gave it rave views during their Board meeting reports on Wednesday night. “The highlight of my last couple of weeks was going to the choir concert at Concord High,” McFerrin said. “I am really quite impressed at the quality of those performances and I’m so grateful to our music educators that do really exceptional work. And it just really shows when our students perform.” Mayo said: “That was fantastic to see all of the students vocalizing together!” Please consider DONATING to keep this kind of event always available to our children.
