Pre-Area Choir Results

Laura Nicolescu, Co-Editor-In-Chief

Six singers from the Choir Department competed in the TMEA Region 24 Pre-Area Auditions at Independence last Tuesday for a chance to make the Texas All-State Choir. Of the six, five singers advanced:

Samantha Benovitz (Soprano 1) – 3rd chair

Niyoosha Talukder (Soprano 2) – 1st alternate, 6th chair

Moraa Kombo (Alto 2) – 4th chair

Chandler Tidwell (Alto 2) – 5th chair

Ashwin Krishnan (Tenor 1) – 4th chair

This is a huge accomplishment: only the top five singers are selected from 15 well-trained singers from the surrounding regions of Plano, Frisco, Little Elm, and Prosper.

Their final step toward making the nationally renown Texas All-State Choirs takes place Jan. 13 at University of Texas at Arlington. They will be competing against singers from all over the metroplex.

Wish these hard working and talented singers the best in their upcoming journey!
