Beating other students throughout the Southeast, Noah Mofield was selected to be a part of the American Choral Directors Association Southern Division Honor Choirs. His audition earned him one of 20 spots in the bass section of the choir and will perform at the ACDA Southern Division conference March 9-12 in Chattanooga, Tenn.
The Brogden Middle School eighth grader had to submit an audition tape that demonstrated his vocal range and showed him performing a solo piece.
“Noah is so motivated. Everything he does comes from within. His sight reading ability is amazing,” said Brogden chorus teacher Corinne Huber. “He work with other students to help them achieve their best and participates in all the after school band and chorus events. He is a joy to have in the classroom.”
Mofield has been taking music lessons since preschool, took piano lessons through elementary school and plays percussion in Brogden’s jazz and concert ensembles. He comes from a musical family – his mom is a singer and his older brother plays French horn in the Riverside High marching band where Mofield sees himself next year.
“Before this year, there were a lot of things I wanted to do when I grew up,” said Mofield. “Music has paved the way to show me that I really want to be a chorus teacher.”
In addition to the ACDA Southern Division Honor Choir, Mofield was selected to participate in “An Evening of Entertainment,” the All-County Chorus and the All-State Chorus.
