- TMEA District Audition -

Saturday, September 21 | | Colleyville Heritage HS

The first round of the TMEA Audition process is this weekend! Thank you to all of those who are volunteering to help make this day successful. We ask that all students, auditioning and volunteering, please wear a choir shirt and jeans while at the audition. The Alto and Basses will be registering at 7:30 am and auditioning into the early afternoon. Tenors and Sopranos will be registering at 12:00 pm and auditioning into the early evening. You are welcome to come early and use the choir room as a warm up space with the other auditioning students. Please remember that all technology is prohibited at this audition, even after you have finished auditioning. You will be disqualified should there be any violation of this rule. Once you have completed this audition, you are free to leave unless you have signed up to volunteer for the remainder of the day. Results will be published and sent through email once the entire audition is complete. Good luck tomorrow!

- Region 31 Honor Choir Audition -

Saturday, October 26 | TBA | L.D. Bell High School

Any 9th and 10th grade students interested in the Region 31 Honor Choir audition this year can begin picking up music and information this coming Tuesday from Mr. Gilliland. Much like the TMEA All-State process, these auditions stretch students in their music making and encourage strength in the individual performance process. This audition is specifically designed to be the first step for students interested in the TMEA process in the future, and it creates a wonderful experience that culminates in a performance alongside the Region 31 Choir of students auditioning in the TMEA process. If you would like to pick up the music, sectional schedule, and more information about the process, you may see Mr. Gilliland beginning this coming Tuesday.

- Homecoming Week at CHHS -

Homecoming week is coming up quickly at CHHS, and we would love for you to help us support CHHS and represent the choir program throughout the week! We have two main opportunities for student help this week: hall decorating and the homecoming parade. More information will come out soon, but in the meantime, help us plan for the parade by voting for the theme of our homecoming float!

- CHHS Choir Forms -

If you have not returned forms and fees or been fitted for a uniform, please understand that each of these components is necessary and required in order to participate in our choral program throughout the year and can negatively influence a student's grade when unable to fully participate. We are excited to have you/your student in our program, and we look forward to getting these items taken care of so that they may fully participate in the Panther Choir. Please let us know if there is anything we can assist you with.
