Twenty Waco High Choir Members Advance to State Solo & Ensemble Contest

Twenty Waco High Choir Members Advance to State Solo & Ensemble Contest
Posted on 02/26/2016

StateThe following Waco High Choir members participated in the Regional North Zone UIL competition held at Waco High this past weekend.  Out of the fifty-four students who auditioned on a solo, twenty-four of them earned a superior division, which is the highest score you receive. Twenty-eight of them earned an excellent division, and two earned a rating of good.  We also had four ensembles compete and are proud to report that two received superior divisions and two received excellent divisions.  

Out of the twenty-five superior solo division medals, sixteen of them advanced to state. Two of our ensembles also advanced to state, which means the Waco High Choir will be taking twenty students to the State UIL Solo and Ensemble Competition in Austin on Memorial Day Weekend.  

 These students are the product of many amazing music instructors that have guided them in their path to success. If you are a former music teacher of one of these amazing students, I would like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your passion for music can be seen through them every single day.
