Mr. Hollihan said, “I think the choral festival is a tremendous opportunity to represent not only Whetstone High School in music, but also Columbus City Schools. This is a choral contest that features our vocal ensemble women performing and making music in front of three judges, before heading to a sight reading room and working there as well.”
“As a teacher I look forward to contests because they’re not only great performance opportunities, but also great educational opportunities and it is a chance to get feedback from,” continued Mr. Hollihan.
