On Saturday, Jan. 8, Kayla Cistrunk, Khye Colbert, Jeremiah Howard, Edward Porras, Cheyenne Simon, Stanford Smith and Ashlee Whiteside competed at the area round of All-State choir auditions at The Woodlands High School. This is the fourth and final round of a very competitive process that began in September. Summer Creek High School is proud of all the students that represented Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) Region 33 at the area competition.
At area, students are competing against the top five students from four regions which cover the entire North Houston area as far west as Cy-Fair ISD, as far north as Huntsville ISD and as far east as the Louisiana border.
At area, the following students earned the honor of being named to one of the TMEA Texas All-State Choirs. Becoming a member of the TMEA All-State choir, band or orchestra is the highest honor a Texas music student can receive. The Summer Creek Choir earned more students in an all-state organization than any other Humble ISD high school band, choir or orchestra this year. Over 50,000 students initially entered into the All-State process (band, choir and orchestra combined). Only 500 students were selected to perform with the All-State choirs in eight areas across the state. These students will perform in San Antonio at the TMEA Convention Feb. 12.
The following students, and their grade level, were named to the following groups.
All-State Mixed Choir — Edward Porras (12); All-State Treble Choir — Kayla Cistrunk (10) and Cheyenne Simon (10).
Alternates to the All-State Choirs are Khye Colbert (10) 2nd alternate and Ashlee Whiteside (9) 2nd alternate.
