Panther Choir Newsletter 2/18/18
This week was a mountain top experience for the Panther Choirs. Chorale's performance for nearly 3000 people in completely filled concert space for the 2018 Texas Music Educator's Association convention was simply stunning. The energy and excitement in the room was palpable. What a thrill to share this moment with the students and parents of the CHHS Panther Choir. The response from attendees following the performance was overwhelming. We have received countless, texts, emails, facebook posts, and in person congratulations on the performance noting the students "passion, musicality, and artistry". An enormous thank you to the volunteers who supported this venture and especially all of the parents that traveled to San Antonio to assist.
ALL-STATE SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION DUE TOMORROW
As I watched our four All-Sate Students perform in the Texas All-State Choirs yesterday I was reminded of the incredible experience this is. The journey from the start of this process to the finish line is one on intense musical and personal growth. As we look forward to next year we want to support our students in this journey. Please reference the scholarship page HERE for specific information about requirements.
Last week there was a schedule published for Chamber Choir as we prepare for our performance at Washington National Cathedral in April. All of these rehearsals have also been added to our google calendar. Please use the new Absence Request Form to note any missed rehearsals. Remember you may be removed from performing with the Chamber Choir for missing more than 2 rehearsals for ANY reason.

FROM THE PANTHER CHOIR BOOSTERS
Congratulations Panther Chorale and All-State Choir members Skylar Dubose, Karyssa Nelson, Nasir Panjwani and Will Swinney! We are so proud of all of you! Sensing the air being sucked out of the room while the audience of 3000+ waited for Chorale to breathe on them again was something we will never forget. Every person at TMEA was deeply touched by the power and tenderness you expressed. Thank you for sharing your character, your gifts, and your talents!
