Austin Elementary Student Qualifies for TCDA Elementary Honor Choir
By: Susan Passmore
Stephen F. Austin Elementary music student Jaylee Anderson qualified as a member of the 2018 Texas Choral Director’s Association’s Elementary Honor Choir last month. The Texas Choral Directors Association selects the top 150 elementary voices in the state to comprise the choir, which consists of 4th-6th graders. To qualify for the state choir, elementary vocalists were chosen via online audition from over 800 entries.
Jaylee’s music teacher, Mrs. Carol Colvin, insists that her work ethic and musicality have a great deal to do with her success in this year’s state audition.
“Of all the students that I work with, Jaylee’s work ethic and preparedness coming into the audition, coupled with her vocal talent, made it a strong opportunity for her success. She has such a unique quality in her voice and was very self-motivated to make the choir. The bar for performance groups at TCDA continues to get higher each year, with this year being no exception.”
This year’s TCDA state convention was held in San Antonio and consisted of two days of rehearsing under the direction of Ruth Dwyer, director of education with the Indianapolis Children's Choir and artistic director of the Columbus Indiana Children's Choir. Congratulations to Jaylee, her supportive parents and her GCCISD Music Teacher, Mrs. Colvin, who all made the trip to San Antonio to hear the state performance. Jaylee and Mrs. Colvin will be recognized by the GCCISD board of trustees on Tuesday evening, September 4, 2018, at 6:30pm.
