Last week was quite busy and eventful. Our Chamber Singers sang on Sunday Evening with the Acappella Choir from Louisiana State University and then traveled to San Antonio this weekend where they were recognized as one of top performing ensembles with both a superior division rating and the prestigious "Performance of Distinction" recognition at the American Classics Chamber and Madrigal Choir Competition. Following our performance the singers had the opportunity to work with Dr. Jonothan Reed, Director of Choirs at Michigan State University who was blown away by the students dedication, musicianship, and positive spirit stating over and over again as he tried to use his "Texan" "Y'all are just awesome!" Monday evening our All-State Singers were recognized at the GCISD School Board Meeting. Tuesday evening members of our Jazz Choir collaborated with members of the Grapevine HS Jazz Choir to Perform at the GCISD Soaring Valor Event. We are extremely proud of our students, their superb musicianship, and their positive spirits as they have been out in the community and collaborating with other musicians.
