DSHS Students Named to All-Region Choir

October 19, 2020


The first round of the Texas Music Educators Association All-State Choir Auditions took place virtually as students recorded audio auditions, which were judged Oct. 17 by a panel of expert choir directors and voice teachers. Of the 35 Dripping Springs High School choir students who participated in the audition process and submitted recordings to be considered in the first round (region) of the audition process, 23 students earned a spot in the Region Choir, and will advance to the Pre-Area round of auditions. Twelve DSHS students placed in the "Top Five chairs" in their section. Courtney Neva is the DSHS choir director.
