Five Perham High School seniors participated in the 29th Annual NDSU High School Choral Festival held October 8-9, at North Dakota State University in Fargo. The festival is an opportunity for students from high schools around Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota to experience performing together.

This was senior Ian Christenson's second appearance as part of the auditioned Chamber Choir. Over 100 students from the three states auditioned and only 34 were chosen, with the other participants selected by their high school director for their outstanding musicianship and leadership to be apart of the Mixed Festival Choir. The students chosen by Perham High School Choir director Nikki Mattfield were: Madison McAllister, Hope Johnson, Junior Nordick, and Seth Dykhoff.

Each choir performed four pieces and then there was one large combined performance at the end of the concert on Monday night.
