Greater Atlanta Christian School rising senior, Haotian (Bob) Yu, has been selected for the 2020 All-National Mixed Choir. Bob entered GAC as an International home-stay student his freshman year and quickly gravitated to the offerings in the Fine Arts Department and onsite private music lessons. “Bob has attained and displayed a level of mastery in this subject beyond most students in our country. He successfully passed the two All State rounds of auditions (which required implementation of varied musical knowledge and skills) as well as the subsequent recorded vocal audition for All National,” shared Dr. Marcus Miller, GAC Director of Choral and Vocal Activities.
The All-National Mixed Choir is chosen from high school applicants spanning all 50 states and is comprised of over 250 musicians. The culminating program is expected to take place in at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, November 5-8, 2020.
Bob is currently in his hometown of Shanghai, China, and was thrilled to hear the news. “Dr. Miller has impacted me the most throughout my time at GAC. He not only guided me through the process of studying music, but is also a mentor to me,” he shared via email.
Bob is the son of Haiying Wu and is a part of GAC’s International Homestay program, where students begin their high school education and graduate from GAC.
