Mac High choir performs for inauguration

McMinnville High School students played a key role in Monday's inauguration of Oregon Gov. Kate Brown.

Mac High's Symphonic Choir sang several times during the ceremony in the Oregon State Capitol in Salem. Brown chose the choir after hearing it at an event last fall.

Teacher Robin Pederson directed as the students performed pieces such as "Tres Cantos Nativos Dos Indios Krao," "Be Like the Bird" and "Sure on This Shining Night."

The Grand Ronde Singers also performed prior to the inauguration.

Brown was sworn in as governor for the second time, although this is the first time she's been elected to the position. She became governor for the first time after the resignation of John Kitzhaber.
