MPHS Choir members selected for All-Region Choir
Thirteen Mount Pleasant High School Choir members earned places in the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) All-Region Choir, with four additional students named alternates.
Auditions were on Saturday, September 23, at Sulphur Springs High School.
Those selected include seniors Hope Powell (2nd Alto, chair 2), Jacori Turner (2nd Tenor chair 4), Jacolby Turner (2nd Tenor chair 5), Clayton Miller (2nd Tenor chair 8), Harley Martin (2nd Soprano 1st alternate), juniors Kristina Tidwell (2nd Soprano chair 6), Maleah Duenez (2nd Soprano chair 8), Madison Zepeda (2nd Alto chair 5), Alivia Newman (2nd Alto chair 9), sophomores Emileigh Hobbs (2nd Alto chair 11), Aaliyah Gholston (2nd Alto 1st alternate), Bella Reyes (2nd Alto 2nd alternate), Taitus Chong (2nd Tenor 1st alternate), and freshmen Mattie Merriman (2nd Soprano chair 3), Sara Vanhoose (2nd Alto chair 3), Daniel Kimbrough (2nd Bass chair 3), and Hector Sierra-Rosales (2nd Bass chair 5).
To earn a place in the choir, each singer had to sing three selections before a panel of five judges, a challenging task for a high school student.
“I am very proud of each of these singers,” said MPHS Choir Director Nancy Vines. “They have diligently prepared during class and on their own time.”
The students selected for the All-Region Choir have advanced to Pre-Area auditions on November 14, which is the next level of competition. The annual All-Region Clinic and Concert will consist of four ensembles on Saturday, November 4, beginning at 4:00 pm in the Mount Pleasant High School auditorium. There is no charge for the concert. The MPHS Choir is directed by Nancy Vines and assisted by Joshua Miles, with accompaniment provided by Deanna Warren.
