Heaton takes first chair in All State choir competition



San Marcos High School junior Sam Heaton has earned first chair, Bass 2 in the Texas Music Educators Association All State Mixed Choir for 2011.

“This has been a really long process that started in July, and is now complete,” Miers said. “He (Heaton) is part of a very unique, highly regarded group of talented students who are proud to be called Texas All-State Choir members.”

Heaton was also recognized this fall when he received a medal for being an outstanding performer at the state solo/ensemble UIL competition. He was one of 231 students selected in Texas for that honor from over 22,000 musicians who performed at the state level competition.

In August 2010, Heaton was invited to join the Texas State University Choir when they will perform Carmina Burana. The scheduled performance will take place in Greece at the Athens Olympic Stadium during the summer of 2011.
