Amy Almquist

Welcome!  I am the choral director at Enka Middle School.  I have been teaching for twenty-four years, and I've been at Enka Middle for twenty-three years.  I have three bachelor degrees from Mars Hill (College when I was there) University - Music Education, Vocal Performance, and Language Arts.  

I grew up all over the Southeast - Mississippi, Texas, Kentucky, and North Carolina.  My husband and I have two sons, a sixteen-year-old and an eleven-year-old.  In my "spare" time, I sing with my church choir, teach private piano and voice lessons, and attend lots of basketball and soccer practices and games with my boys.

Choir at Enka Middle is a great place to be.  Many of the students in choir feel that it a family, a place to belong instead of just another class.  Most choir students begin with the class in seventh grade and stay with the choir until they leave for the high school.  

We have attended the North Carolina Music Educators' Association State Music Performance Adjudication for several years, and we always receive either an Excellent rating or a Superior rating at this festival.  There are also opportunities for students to be involved in extra-curricular activities such as NCMEA Middle School Honors Chorus, NCMEA All-State Chorus, and the Buncombe County Schools All-County Chorus.

We (usually) have concerts planned for each nine weeks, with our variety show in the spring.  Please see the "News and Notes" tab for all concerts and events.  I know this year is going to be awesome!
