  Meridian Ranch students in all-state choir

     The Colorado Elementary All-State Choir, comprised of about 300 students from various parts of Colorado, presented a concert Jan. 30 to a full crowd at the Broadmoor Hotel. Five fifth-graders and three fourth-graders from Meridian Ranch Elementary sang in the choir, which was divided into two groups of 150 kids each. The concert, presented by the Colorado Music Educators, is in its fifth year. Craig Phipps, an at-large member of the all-state choir and a teacher at MRES, had worked with the students representing MRES since the beginning of October.
   
   Paul Caldwell, the artistic director of the Youth Choral Theater of Chicago in Illinois, led the performance, which included seven songs.
