WCS Choir Students Join Mid-State, All-State Choirs
Published November 15, 2022
Thirty-one WCS high school choir students are now part of the Tennessee Music Education Association (TMEA) All-State Choirs, and dozens more have earned spots on the Middle Tennessee Vocal Association (MTVA) Mid-State Choirs.
To be selected for the choirs, students were required to learn pieces of music and sight-read an additional selection. The performances were judged using a rubric that evaluated pitch, diction, tone, rhythm and more. The group of judges was made up of teachers and members of the MTVA.
"Being selected for Mid-State and All-State is a premier accomplishment for high school musicians," said RHS choir director Rose Hellmers. "Thousands of singers from all around Tennessee undergo a rigorous audition process to earn this prestigious title, as well as the opportunity to sing with nationally-renowned clinicians at the annual All-State concert in April. WE are so proud of our WCS choral sings for this huge accomplishment."
Students in the Freshman Honor Choir will perform on January 19 at Belle Aire Baptist Church in Murfreesboro. Students in other Mid-State and All-State groups will also perform in the spring. More details about the performances will be available on the MTVA website.
Congratulations to the students listed below. This list was provided by the MTVA and checked by WCS choir directors.
