The McMinnville High School Symphonic Choir was invited to perform at today’s inauguration of Governor Kate Brown. Led by MHS choral director Robin Pederson, the group performed six pieces during the ceremony at the Oregon State Capitol.

The choir performed Tres Cantos Nativos Dos Indios Krao and Sure on This Shining Night during the prelude and Over My Head, Be Like the Bird, Gloria from “Missa Kenya,” and Together.  The final piece was performed with the BRAVO Youth Orchestras.

The Symphonic Choir was the only choir and the only high school that participated in the event. The event, part of the 70th Oregon Legislative Assembly, was held in the House Chamber in the Capitol in Salem.
