LCJH students make choral groups
Stephanie Teague, Little Cypress Junior High Choir teacher reports that seven of the 21 choir members who competed in the annual Texas Music Educators All Region Auditions earned places in this year’s All Region Choirs.
Earning a spot in the Treble Choir this year are eighth graders Rachel Belcher, Brianna Frenzel, Molly Gericke, McKenzie Guillory, Haley Votava and seventh grader Shelby Smith. Tyren Dews, eighth grader, will represent LCJH in the Tenor Bass Choir.
Four of these students, Molly Gericke, McKenzie Guillory, Shelby Smith and Haley Votava, also scored well enough to sing with the mixed choir as well as the two choirs mentioned above.
For the first year ever, there will be an All-Region Honor Choir. Four LCJH students were selected for this inaugural group. They are seventh graders Melanie Cupp, Aubree Lejeune and Hunter Perkins and eighth grader Maggie Pigg.
According to Ms. Teague, “I am incredibly proud that we will have four more students representing LCJH and grateful that the Region coordinators realized a need to expand the involvement because there is so much talent in our area.”
