Dear Choir Director:

The 2022 6th Grade Honors Choir Clinic and Concert will be held on Monday, April 4 at Moberly Area Community College (MACC) Activities Center.

I am excited to announce that Beth Burch has agreed once again to be our director. Beth Burch taught 4th, 5th, and 6th graders for many years in Marshfield, MO. While at Marshfield, the Junior Jay Singers performed at MMEA under her direction. Prior to that, she taught Junior High and High School choral music at Spokane and Reeds Spring.
