The Friendswood JH Choir Department hosted the Region 17 Honor Choir Auditions. Over 700 students from 20 area Junior High schools prepared for this intensive audition to be considered for one of 250 spots. Students auditioned through a blind screening process for a panel of 5 judges. 49 students from Friendswood Junior High Choir Department auditioned and 31 students made the choir, including 1 alternate.
“Our students worked diligently from day one to learn their music with a high level of musicality and precision”, said Laura Rachita, Choir Director. “We celebrate what they have learned through this process and look forward to their continued growth throughout the school year.”
The Region 17 Choir Clinic and Concert will be at Blocker Middle School in Texas City on Saturday, Oct. 29 at 5:00 pm. Admission is free and the public is invited. The Friendswood Choir Department Directors are Laura Rachita and Elizabeth Chrisman.
