Three students from the Melissa High School choir program will advance to the area competition after competing at pre-area on Nov. 12.
Madison Courtney, Andru Wilson, and Rachel Wresh will compete at the area competition on Jan. 12, each vying for a spot in the Texas Small School All-State Choir.
In preparation for the pre-area competition, the students learned “Domine, Ad Adjuvandum Me Festina” by G. B. Martini and Movement 9 of “Zigeunerlieder” by Johannes Brahms. The audition required the singers to perform a small selection from each piece of music, and to sight-read eight measures of music, all before a panel of five judges.
On Thursday, Dec. 13, the community is invited to attend the Melissa Choir Christmas Concert featuring performances by the choirs of Melissa High School and Melissa Middle School. The concert begins at 7:00 p.m. in the Student Union at Melissa High School.
