Valley View Senior qualifies for national choir

Valley View Senior Ryan Coleman qualified for PMEA District 9, Region IV and All State Choir during the 2019-20 school year. Although the performances were canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic, Ryan was eligible to audition for the National Association for Music Education’s national choir and received confirmation recently that he successfully auditioned and was accepted to perform as a tenor 1 for the 2020 NAfME National Mixed Choir. Ryan is only the sixth student in Valley View history to achieve this national honor. The process by which the festivals are scored is most competitive and it is a true reflection on his hard work, commitment and his dedication to his schoolwork and beyond, school district officials said.
