San Marcos CISD Intermediate and Middle School Choirs competed in the Director’s Choice/Music Choice Contests of Lubbock on May 16, winning six trophies and superior ratings. The competition was held at St. Phillips College in San Antonio.
The Hernandez Intermediate School Choir won “Best in Class” for the elementary division. The Middle School Boys Choir won “Best in Class” for Middle School Boys Division. The Middle School Ladies Choir placed second in overall competition, and were runners up for “Best in Class” in the Middle School Girls Division.
“I am particularly proud of the work that Brigitte Smith has done with the Hernandez Choir program with fifth and sixth grade students,” said SMCISD Choral Director Helen Miers. “Also, the middle school students from Miller and Goodnight showed great maturity and poise on stage and off stage, and were commended for their exemplary behavior. We gave a great bunch of choir kids growing up and getting ready to become San Marcos High School Rattler Choir members.”
These victories come on the heels of San Marcos High School winning seven trophies in Dallas during the Directors Choice Lone Star Showcase Contest, which was held in late April. The awards include superior trophies for Varsity Mixed, Varsity Ladies, and Men’s Choir, and an excellent rating trophy for the Junior Varsity/Beginning Women’s choir.
The Varsity Mixed, Varsity Ladies, and Men’s Choirs all won the “Best in Class” recognition for 4A High School Choirs, as well.
