Three Brookfield Academy students participated in Singing in Wisconsin sponsored by The Wisconsin Choral Directors Association. Saya Masters, Lucy Allen, and Liam Williams went to Carroll University on Saturday, November 12. They learned all of their music in one day and sang a concert at the end!
For 30 years, Singing in Wisconsin has brought young musicians together across our state for a day of choral music and connection. Hosted at four regional sites and directed by fantastic clinicians, Singing in Wisconsin is a festival choir experience for all Wisconsin singers in grades 4-12.
