TCDA State Elementary Honor Choir

July 21-23, 2016, San Antonio, TX

Dear choir parents,

I am pleased to announce that I strongly believe that your child is a gifted singer and should audition to be a part of the Texas Choral Directors Association Elementary Honor Choir.

I am a member of TCDA and even a guest presenter this summer! This summer is also a year they are offering a state level elementary honor choir. This choir is only offered on EVEN years and is made up of the top 4th, 5th, and 6th grade singers in the state. It is an elite, auditioned choir and I am proud to have had Hubenak students selected to sing in this choir in 2012 and 2014.

The audition process is done by recording and internet submission in my classroom, guided by the teacher. For the audition, you will be required to submit a signed commitment form and pay a $15 audition fee to TCDA.

If your child is selected to this group, your family will provide transportation and hotels for the event in San Antonio, TX on July 21-23rd. Mr. Perez and I are sponsors, not chaperones. It it the family's responsibility to see that the child gets to and from rehearsals, etc. The fee for registration, if selected, is $75. TCDA also helps provide discounted hotel rooms for the event.

If selected, your child will be a part of a large choir of students from all over Texas with a nationally acclaimed conductor. They will have sheet music and recorded practice tracks to practice with at home and come to the clinic with all songs memorized. The clinic will involve 2 days of intense (but fun) rehearsals and end with a performance for thousands of choir directors, family and friends at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center on the last day, Saturday, July 23rd.

If you are interested in having your child audition for this group, if your calendar is free for that week and you are up for this commitment, please fill out the form below by February 5. I will set up audition recording appointments with each child on non-choir mornings and afternoons. We will work out the best times for your schedule.

Mrs. Ramsey
