They are Matt Buchholz, son of Stanley and Kathy Buchholz, Rachel Peterson, Daughter of Sid and Janet Peterson and Brady and Brittny Rebhuhn, daughters of Doug and Marcia Rebhuhn.
The students were chosen by taped auditions. Approximately 3200 student auditioned for the 720 positions in the four Opus honor choirs. Matt, Rachel, Brady and Brittny will all be members of the 5th and 6th Grade Elementary Honor Choir. Only 180 5th and 6th grade students in the state were selected to be in the elementary choir.
