Seven students from the Blythewood High School Choir were among the top 425 students selected by audition for the 2016 South Carolina All-State Choir out of nearly 2,000 students who auditioned.  The audition was held at Winthrop University March 3-5 in Rock Hill, South Carolina.

“There was absolutely nothing like witnessing the tears of joy from these students who I hold so near and dear to my heart, especially from the students who made it for the first time,” BHS Choir Director Kristin Claiborne said. “Moments like that are why I do what I do.”

This marks the second year BHS had had students selected, and the first time in school history that female students were selected.
