Plano Singers Dominate HS All-Region Choirs

TMEA Region 24 conducted two round of auditions in late September for the annual High School All-Region Choirs. A total of 539 students from Plano, Frisco, Prosper & Little Elm went through the audition process. Two All-Region choirs were selected from this group of auditions; the 120 singer Mixed Choir and the 128 singer Treble Choir. Plano ISD students earned 156 of the total chairs in these two ensembles, representing 68% of the All-Region choir membership. These choirs will work Dr. Betsy Cook Weber from the University of Houston and Dr. Joni Jensen from Texas Women’s University this coming Saturday and present their All-Region performance at 4:00 pm at Messiah Lutheran Church.
