Choir students competed at subsection contest


The Pine River-Backus High School Choir participated in both large-group, solo and ensemble contests this spring.

The choir earned three superior ratings at the subsection contest in New York Mills. The section that traditionally hosted the state contest did not hold it this year. Three superior ratings would have qualified the choir for participation in a section-state contest.
