On Saturday, September 29, twenty-nine (29) students from the Varsity Chorale at LWHS competed for spots in the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) Region Choir (Combined Regions 5, 30, and 31). The level of competition was higher than any year in the past plus we combined with two other regions in this audition. But our Bullfrogs were up to the challenge!
Please join me in congratulating the following 15 singers who either placed in the choir or were an alternate.
Amberlee Baerwladt – 2nd Chair Soprano
Jayden Ford – 3rd Chair Tenor
Jonathan Ramirez – 5th Chair Bass
Klaryssa Arredondo – 6th Chair Alto
Emmanuel Paredes – 8th Chair Bass
Damaris Franco – 9th Chair Alto
Ebony Kelly – 9th Chair Soprano
Kayla Woods – 10th Chair Alto
Enrique Cordova – 11th Chair Tenor
Matthew Ramirez – 12th Chair Bass
Angel Espinoza – 13th Chair Bass
Elene Zamarron – 14th Chair Alto
Jaren Viloria – 16th Chair Bass
Lauren Cattes – 2nd Alternate Soprano
Gary Washington – 2nd Alternate Bass
All those who placed also automatically qualified for the Pre-Area Audition. That means they are just 2 steps away from the Texas All-State Choir!
This newly formed combined region choir consists of 64 singers from 3 regions in the Greater Fort Worth and Irving area. So a little math shows that LWHS is 20% of the choir!!!!
The Varsity Chorale is under the direction of Mr. Bryce Lowrance.
