Michael Hamill Selected For All-Eastern Mixed Choir


Michael Hamill

Senior Michael Hamill has made school history with his singing.

Hamill became the first Marion student to be selected to the National Association for Music Education’s All-Eastern Mixed Choir, an honors ensemble that features students from 11 states and the Department of Defense School in Europe.

In order to apply, students must be a junior or a senior and have been selected to perform in their state’s All-State ensemble.

Hamill will be performing with the All-Eastern Mixed Choir under the direction of Dr. Cory Ganshow of Bradley University. The concert will premiere virtually on April 23 at 8:30 p.m.

Hamill became eligible to apply after being selected for the Conference All-State Mixed Chorus, which is the highest choral honor in the state. He earned this honor by receiving a perfect score on his All-State solo audition.

“I am very proud of him and I know the rest of our music community is as well,” Marion choir director Ann Maine said.
