THREE WHS STUDENTS EARN SEAT IN THE TEXAS ALL STATE CHOIR
At WHS, we begin summer All State Workshops the first Monday in August and work until school starts. The first round is held in September. In our Region, over 150 students auditioned for each voice part to earn their way to the second round. At round 2, the top 48 are narrowed to the top 12. In the third round, those 12 are narrowed down to the top 5. Those 5 advance to the Area round. We competed this weekend with 4 other Regions that stretch from Grapevine to El Paso. These were the top 20 singers from the over 600 who began auditioning in their voice part. The top four of each voice part from each Area make the Texas All State Mixed Choir and places 5-10 make either the All State Men's or Women's Chorus. Statewide over 10,000 students auditioned for less than 300 seats in 1 of 3 All State Choirs.
These three ladies earned a seat in the Texas All State Choir for the second year in a row.
Lili H. 1st Chair Soprano 1 Texas All State Mixed Choir
Rachel W. 3rd Chair Alto 1 Texas All State Mixed Choir
Emily H. 10th Chair Alto 1 Texas All State Women's Choir
All three students study voice with Carol P. and are members of WHS A Cappella Mixed Choir and Kanga Singers.
Come by the choir room to see our perennial plaque which honors every WHS Choir student who earned a place in the Texas All State Choir since its inception.
