Whitbeck has twice before the choir, the highest honor a Texas secondary school music student can receive.

A third high school student, Sam Heaton, is a second alternate to the Men’s All-State choir.

“Over 15,000 choral students begin the process, and only 500 make it to the All-State choir. In our area, only the top four singers in each section are chosen,” choral director Helen Miers said.

Whitbeck and Applewhite will perform with the Texas All-State Choir on Saturday, Feb. 13, at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio as part of the 2010 Texas Music Educators Association Convention.
