NBHS choir members Brianna Sargent, Samuel Smith and Grace Shafer (pictured at the left) recently competed in the final round of the TMEA All-State Audition by preparing and submitting a virtual audition.
The auditions will provide the students with an opportunity to qualify for one of the Texas All-State Choirs. Smith was a member of the All-State Choir in 2020 and hopes to be selected again this year.
“This was a difficult task, as the process was created specifically for this year and was vastly different from the audition protocol we are used to,” said Caitlyn Gallegos, NBHS choir director. “All of the students should be commended for their hard work!”
