Congratulations to All-State Members!

Congratulations to our three Florida All-State Choir Members! Isabella Sbarra Michelland and Mackenzie Wolf are making their second trip to all-state and Andrew Darden is making his first appearance. All three members are in the 9-12 Mixed Chorus and will be traveling to Tampa this week to sing with the best singers in the state.

Upcoming Events

ACDA Honor Choir Audition Deadline

Students that wish to audition for the American Choral Directors Association National Honor Choir must submit their audition by this date. The National Honor choirs occur every two years in conjunction with the ACDA National Convention. The convention this year is in Cincinnati, OH. The dates of the convention are February 22-25, 2023. Auditions are solely based on a vocal audition. There is no sight singing or music theory component as there is with the All-State Audition. If you are accepted, you will get to sing with the best singers from all over the country, as well as some international singers.

There are three choirs this year for high school students. There is Junior High Chorus, which includes 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students. There is a Senior High SATB Chorus and a Senior High SSAA Chorus for grades 10-12. Sopranos and Altos may audition for both choirs. I highly recommend auditioning for one of these choirs. See Mr. Stroh for all of the audition requirements and information.

TAG Going to Italy

This has been quite the week for the Vocal Department.  Cypress Chorale and Intermezzo sang at the FVA Choral MPA on Thursday, Feb 20. Chorale received straight superiors from the judges and Intermezzo received an overall superior rating from the judges, including a superior in sight reading.  TAG competed in the ICHSA South Quarterfinal in Tampa on Saturday, Feb. 22 and came out with the win, besting 8 other groups.  Wedler Lordeus won the award for best Vocal Percussion and Isabella Sbarra won the award for Best Solo.  Congrats to all members for an amazing week!
