BHS Choir Members Compete in 1st Round TMEA Region 7 All-State Choir Audition

On Saturday, September 23, fifty-two (52) members of the Brownwood High School Choir traveled to Graham to compete in the TMEA Region 7 1st Round All-State Choir Audition.

Competing choir members learned to pronounce words in both French and Latin, in order to perform their auditions on the pieces chosen by the state:

  • Toutes les nuits – by Janequin
  • Missa Brevis Joannis de Deo – by Haydn Choir

Members were informed upon arrival at Graham High School (GHS) which sections of the songs would be auditioned individually. The repertoire portion of the audition counted as 80% of their final score. As a part of their audition, choir members were required to sight-read an eight-measure portion of music, without accompaniment, that would be revealed to them once they were in the audition room. The sight-reading portion of the audition counted as 20% of their final score.

Thirty-six (36) students from Region 7 were chosen to be part of the Treble Choir. BHS Choir members earned fourteen (14) of those spots, comprising 38% of the 2017 All-Region Treble Choir. Additionally, twelve alternate students were chosen. These alternates will join the Treble Choir should a member become ill and/or ineligible. BHS Choir members also filled four (4) of the available alternate spots.

A total of forty-eight (48) students from Region 7 were chosen to be part of the Mixed Choir. BHS Choir members earned sixteen (16) of those spots, comprising 33% of the 2017 All-Region Mixed Choir. Additionally, sixteen alternate students were chosen. These alternates will join the Mixed Choir should a member become ill and/or ineligible.
