Singers’ hard work pays off
All-state choir students will have an opportunity to attend a TMEA conference at Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center from Feb. 8-10.
The all-state members will be in intensive rehearsals with their all-state organization for several days in preparation for the conference.
“What you’re asking about is this huge convention thing for like all of Texas,” junior and All-State Choir singer Elise Estrada said. “All the top chairs from the area I told you about are like the state choir, and we rehearse for like a week for at least five-ish hours each time. We put on this big concert at the convention center downtown, and like all the prestigious choir directors from around the country attend.”
The singers have been practicing music in order to make it to this conference since summer break, and they have been learning new songs for four auditions throughout the school year.
“We have 5 students, obviously, who made all-state choir, so those students will be in intensive rehearsals with their all state organizations for several days.” Choir Director Kenneth Turner said. By Mariel Garcia
