TAPPS Vocal Solo & Ensemble Competition Results

On Monday, March 20, CCS took 28 students to TAPPS Vocal Solo & Ensemble Competition. All students came back with Superior and Excellent division ratings. This was the first S/E Competition for each student. Thirteen out of 19 soloists earned Division 1 Superior medals and the rest Division 2 Excellent marks.

Students who sang a solo at the most challenging level while earning the highest rating of Superior Division 1, thus receiving the State Honors Award, are seniors Jessica Atkins and Kiley Kreitz, junior Rayne Harris and sophomore Gray Layton.

Other students who earned the highest Superior rating on a vocal solo are Jackson Broussard, Jaeda Dumas, Evan Ellington, Gia Granato, Maddy McKnight, Emily Muse, Caleb Poirrier, Ashnah Sandhu and Ashleigh Townsend.

The CCS middle school choir earned a Division 1 Superior rating on their ensemble performance. Also, two students, Gray Layton and Owen Layton, earned Division 1 Superior medals in piano solo. Way to go, CCS singers and musicians!

The CCS Chamber Choir will compete in TAPPS Large Ensemble Competition in Waco in April.
