Four girls and one boy from Spanish Fork High School qualified for State Choir as soloists. The girls are Bonnie Miller, Randi Miller, Jessica Christly, and Morgan Hansen. Jacob Warner was the only boy to qualify for the state competition. When asked what it takes to get to the state competition, these students said, “A LOT of practice. Hours upon hours of practicing.” The hardest part for them was probably learning and singing in a foreign language. They had to learn songs in French, Italian, and German.
