Tyler students to take part in state choir

December 13, 2018 by  

Four students who are music majors at Tyler Junior College (TJC) will be part of the Texas Two-Year College All-State Choir. The choir will be performing at the annual convention of the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) in February in San Antonio.

Director of choral music at TJC, Dr. Eric Posada, said the school is thrilled that four of its students will be performing at the state choir this year. He believes this will be a great experience for the students as this convention is one of the most prominent conventions of its type in the country.

Music programs of elementary schools through the college years in the state of Texas meet once a year as part of the TMEA. Typically, 10,000 educators of music and a total of 30,000 people from across the country attend the convention every year.

Dr. Craig Hella Johnson, artistic director and founder of Conspirare (a choral ensemble based in Austin), will be conducting the state choir.

In February, there will be three days of rehearsal so the choir can learn seven musical selections. Their performance will be on Saturday, February 16 at 7:30 pm in the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio.

The use of various kinds of printing services is one way to get the word out about such accomplishments and recognitions for a school.
