Monday, nine very committed members of the MHS Colla Voce (KOH-la VOH-chay) Choir spent their holiday auditioning for a place in the Texas Music Educators Association Region 16 All-Region Choir. They have spent the last two months working on classical style choral music in German, Latin, and English, as well as perfecting their sight reading skills to prepare for the audition.
They competed against 127 choir members from Seminole, Levelland, Brownfield and Shallowater. Only 56 people of those 127 made the choir, and only four on each voice part – Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass. It was a very tough audition, and we had THREE people make the choir! Please congratulate:
Haili Gardner – Soprano
Alexa Herrera – Alto
Braden Shipman – Bass
In addition to making the All-Region Choir, they also qualified to advance to the next round of auditions as they try to garner a spot in the TMEA All-State Small School Mixed Choir, which will be made up of students from small school (1A-4A) choirs from around the entire state of Texas. This group will rehearse and perform during the TMEA Conference that takes place in San Antonio in February. It would be the highest honor Texas choral music bestows for them to make this distinguished ensemble! Wish them the best as they continue their efforts in working towards this goal!
