Melissa High School choir students, Madison Courtney, Kaycee Fender, and Andru Wilson, were selected to advance to the area competition on Jan. 11, 2020, each vying for a spot in the Texas Small School All-State Choir.
The students competed at pre-area on Nov. 14, 2019. In preparation for the pre-area competition, the students learned “Kyrie” by Nicola Porpora and “For Us There Is No Other Help but Thee” by Pavel Chesnokov. 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. 12, 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 high school gym.
