Top choristers to present concert at Don Smith Performing Arts Center

Music will fill the air Saturday evening as the 224 students making up the all-district and all-region choirs are presented in concert at the Don Smith Performing Arts Center.

The concert will take place at 7 p.m. at Cleburne High School and is the finale to a day of music clinics for choir students who represent the 33 high schools included in Region 7.

“What makes me so excited about hosting this event in our town is this gives our folks the opportunity to experience a performance by the top choir students in this section of the state,” said CHS choir Director Pam Elam. “So often the concerts are held at Weatherford or Granbury. It’s great to have it here in Cleburne.”

Among the high school voices to be performing Saturday will be Cleburne students James Guenthner, Hailey McNutt, Matt Sisk, Kelly Blevins, Conner Fuller and Tim Reyes, who are members of the all-district choir.

Cleburne’s all-region choir members Caitlin Carver, Ashley Rodriguez, Michael Bailey, Marcie Allison, Daisy Horta, Seth Cunningham and Blake Wright, hope the concert will conclude with good news.

They audition in Crowley on Friday for the third round of the Texas Music Educators Association all-state choir.

The results will be announced Saturday evening, with qualifiers advancing to the fourth and final round of competition.

“Last year was my first year to be in choir, and I just wanted to experience the audition process,” Cunningham said. “This year, going to state is something I really want. I’ve participated in UIL solo and ensemble at the state level. I think being named to the all-state choir is the next step for me.”

Carver made it past all-region as a freshman. Now in her second year in choir competition, she wants to improve on her record.
