Scots Choir Update 4.16.23


A NOTE FROM OUR DIRECTORS


Singing Scots and Parents,


Congratulations on a job well done on Wednesday! We are so proud of your hard work and we hope you feel like that hard work paid off--you sounded phenomenal!


Parents, on Wednesday, the Highland Park High School Choirs competed in the Region XX UIL Concert and Sight-Reading Contest at Richardson High School.


Two different ensembles competed, with both receiving a "sweepstakes" trophy!!!! This is the highest rating a musical ensemble can receive and means that both groups were rated first division by all six judges! Well done to the entire choral department!!


We are so impressed with the passion and drive of your students who rehearsed for countless hours to achieve such an incredible result. They sang with artistry, sensitivity, and served the music! …..and we THINK they had FUN too!


We would like to thank all of the parents who came to support and watch the choirs perform. A special shoutout goes to Becky Ethridge and Jeanie Griswold who served as our official chaperones for the day. Their time spent on the bus, collecting cell phones, chaperoning lunches, corralling kids, and playing "parent-to-all" allowed the day to run so smoothly!


Another huge congratulations to all! Now, onward to some Spring Concert music!!

Mr. Patel and Mrs. Walker
