Kenston High School had five singers selected, and four perform in Cleveland with the Ohio All-State Choir on February 3, 2017. The students performed at the annual Ohio Music Educators Association Professional Development Conference. All- State honors are the highest level of choral singing achievable as a high school singer.
Our singers were given the rare opportunity to work with, and sing for, Dr. Brady Allred, the Artistic Director and Conductor of the Salt Lake City Choral Artists, located in Utah.
Senior, Catherine Zickert, has been named to the All-State Choir the past two years. Senior, Kendall Duncan; Juniors, Ryan Kohn and Georgeanna Oxford; and Sophomore, Billy Glime performed with the All-State Choir this year.
Hundreds of high schools are represented during the auditioning in hopes of participating in the Ohio All-State Choir, but only 150 are accepted.
Under the experience and leadership of Choir Director, Julia Green, Kenston’s music programs continue to grow and flourish.
Sophomore, Kayleigh Fisher palyed flute as part of the Ohio All-State Band that performed at the annual Ohio Music Educators Association Professional Development Conference. She had the opportunity to perform under the direction of Michigan State University Director of Bands, Kevin Sedatole. All-State honors are the high level of musical recognition for a high school musician. Under the direction of Band Director, Jeff Link, and Assistant Band Director, Scott Sell, the instrumental music program continues to excel.
All-State Children’s Chorus
Justin Link, a fifth grader at Kenston Intermediate School, was selected by audition to perform with the 2017 All-State Children’s Chorus at the Ohio Music Educators Association Professional Development Conference. Justin, along with other select fourth and fifth graders across the state Ohio rehearsed and then performed a concert of advanced music directed by guest director Judy Bower, professor of Choral Music Education at Florida State University.
Speech and Debate

Congressional Debate is a mock legislative assembly competition where students draft proposed laws and resolutions, which they and their peers later debate and vote to pass into law.
