ENID, Okla. — The young men of Enid High School's Concert Choir are heading to Tulsa Jan. 17 to perform at the Oklahoma Music Educator's Association conference.

Chosen from a statewide pool of applicants, the EHS boys, led by directors Matthew Johnson and Randy Johnson, will take to the First Baptist Church stage in Tulsa at 7:30 p.m., according to Enid Public Schools.

“We are thrilled to be selected to perform at the most prestigious and highly attended conference OkMEA holds annually,” Randy Johnson, head choir director at EHS, said. “Our students work very hard to leave it all on the stage and it shows with every performance they give. We are very proud of all of the hard work they put in to earn this honor.”

The choir racked up a number of accolades during the 2018-2019 school year as well, including OSSAA State Contest Outstanding Achievement Award, OSSAA Distinguished Academic Achievement Award, and OSSAA State Vocal Contest Superior Sight Reading.

Doug Stafford, assistant superintendent of secondary education, applauded the program for "commitment to making the program a state-wide competitor."

“The EPS Choir program has placed EPS on the map and demonstrates the talent of our students and commitment from the high school music department.”
