Congrats to the following students for advancing to the Region Audition next month! We are so proud of everyone who auditioned, and we actually have a record number of students advancing! The previous number was 35, and we have 46 advancing this year. That is an 87% advance rate! Way to go wildcats!
If you wish to know your rank, please see Ms. White and Mr. Ragsdale on Monday.
We will have a Region music camp Monday 4:30-7:30 at TMHS in place of Chorale Rehearsal. All advancing Chorale members MUST attend, and non-chorale members are highly encouraged. There is no charge for this camp.
We are the Tomball Memorial High School Wildcat Choir Department! Our program consists of 165 students in 5 Choir Classes, and 7 performing ensembles. The Choirs of TMHS are consistent UIL Sweepstakes winners and participate in numerous festivals and concerts. Representatives from the choir compete in UIL Solo and Ensemble Contest, as well as the TMEA All-State audition process, advancing students to District, Region and the Texas All-State Choir. Each year, the Wildcat Choir Program continues to grow both in size and its endeavors.
We hope the TMHS Choir Program will be an exemplary model, not only in student performance, but also student leadership. With the support of our incredible Choir Booster Club and our wonderful parents, we strive for excellence in all we do. We have an incredible Choir Council that is helping lead the charge to develop a team-oriented environment, building camaraderie among the choirs and across the choir program. We hope to build one of the best programs in the state of Texas and even the nation.
To develop lifelong learners who pursue and achieve excellence in everything they do, while cultivating the skills of problem solving, goal-setting, time-management, risk-taking and teamwork, resulting in empowered and confident musicians.
