Just recently, 19 choir students were selected for the Texas Music Educators Association All- Region Choir. 14 of these students will be advancing to the next level of the competition in hopes to continue to earn a place in the TMEA All-State Choir.

The students were responsible to learn and perform individually three different pieces. One song was in English and the other two were in German. At the contest, they competed against many students from other schools in the region.

“In order to compete and do well, the students needed to make the most of time given in class as well as making sure to practice outside of that time,” choir director Nikki Hanson said.

The 14 students include: Kamri Swarers, Kaleb Swarers, McKenzie Guillory, Luke Spell, John Paul Sulak, Anayeli Hernandez, Hunter Perkins, Aidan Croaker, Brock Winder, Rachel Belcher, Connor Reno, Shelby Smith, Caleb Weaver, and Melanie Cupp who all advanced to the next level of the competition. The other five students that made All-Region Choir were: Nicholas Hanson, Tyren Dews, Hannah Tait, Elizabeth Johns, and Corey Villa.

“Students who are advancing to the next round of competition will need to learn two new songs,”  Hanson said. “The languages include Latin and German. Students will also be expected to sight read a piece that they have never seen before using our sight reading system learned in choir.”

The next competition will be held in November, where the students will compete again and strive to move on to the next round.

“I am so very proud of the students,” Hanson said. “They faced some tough competition. I would like to tell them to work hard, learn their music, and know that they can do this.”
