Two WLHS choir teams win third place at jazz festival

Both the Women’s Choir and the Jazz Choir placed third in the Clackamas Community College Vocal Jazz Festival on March 14.

The Jazz Choir finished just behind West Salem and South Salem and was able to beat out the stiff competition of Sprague High School and South Eugene High School, who have been fierce competitors in the past, according to Barbara Fontana, choir teacher.

The Women’s Choir competed in the 4A and 5A division against eight other schools, all of whom had a mixed choir and a rhythm section.
