The Zachary High School Choir Department recently had eight students audition and make the Louisiana Music Educators Association(LMEA) District IV Honor Choir. The ZHS Choir is led by Cierra Fountain.
The students had to learn and prepare a German piece using practice tracks and held many after-school rehearsals. The students traveled to Catholic High School in Baton Rouge and sang their pieces for two judges. The students also had to perform a “sight-singing” in front of the judges.
Sight-singing is when the student is required to sing a piece that they have never seen before. They have exactly one minute to practice the rhythm and pitches before singing it for the judge. Sight-singing is a difficult task, but each student handled it well. Fourteen students from ZHS auditioned and eight students earned a spot. Brennan Bankston scored the highest ratings from the judges and was ranked the top Tenor 2 in the district!
