MIDDLEBURY NEWS: Local women sing with Goshen College choirs

Heidi Yaw and Allison Yoder, both with ties to the Middlebury community, participated in choral groups at Goshen College during the last semester.

Yaw, daughter of Darrell Yaw of Middlebury, sings soprano in the chorale and the Women’s World Music Choir. She is a freshman at the college and is majoring in music.

Yoder is the daughter of Kent and Gaye Yoder of Middlebury and sang soprano in the Chamber Choir and in the Women’s World Music Choir. She is a junior music major and graduated from Northridge High School in 2007.

Members of these choral groups had to audition to participate. The Chorale, which has 65 to 80 members in any given year, is directed by Assistant Professor of Music Scott Hochstetler.

The Chamber Choir is open for auditions by juniors and seniors and has a maximum of 30 members. It is directed by Professor of Music Debra Brubaker. Brubaker also directs the Women’s World Music Choir, which focuses on international cultures and celebrating the music of the world, as well as the role women take in the arts within those cultures.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
