We want to specifically share how thankful we are in the Colleyville Heritage Choir program for each student and parent and all of the incredible support, work, and singing that you offer to us and our program.

- Region 31 & 9/10 Honor Choir Clinic and Concert -
This past Saturday, 25 of our singers had an opportunity to perform with other students from around our region in the 9/10 Honor Choir, the Region 31 Treble Choir, and the Region 31 Mixed Choir at FUMC Grapevine. Each ensemble worked with a wonderful director and clinician and each performed beautifully. We are so thankful and encouraged to see our students take advantage of these amazing opportunities!
- TMEA Region 31 | Pre Area Audition Results -
Thirteen of our singers participated in the third round of the TMEA All-State Choir Audition process this past Thursday night. We had a very successful evening with five students advancing to the final, Area round of the audition process, but even more so because of the incredible commitment and initiative we witnessed in each of these singers and the ultimate growth that they each gained from all of the hours spent preparing and performing. We are so proud of each of you and so thankful that you are a leading part of our choir program! The results are posted below, please take some time to congratulate each of these singers the next time you see them!
