BHS A Cappella Choir Members Advance to State Audition in Midland

On Friday, November 18, TMEA Region 7 held auditions to see which of its members would represent Region 7 at the January State-level Audition in Midland. All members of the Region Choir were eligible to audition, but only four per voice part were chosen to advance. Performers were ranked as 1st chair through 4th chair, based on the judges scores of not only their singing of three prepared pieces, but also on their ability to sight-read eight measures of music never before seen or sung by any of those auditioning.

BHS A Cappella members secured thirteen (13) of the "chairs" to advance to the State Level Audition. Of the eight (8) 1st chair spots available, members of A Cappella took four, or half of the top spots. Additionally, BHS A Cappella took ALL the chairs for Bass 1 and Bass 2, leaving no room for any other school in the region to take their young men who sang bass to this final audition.
