October 23-- Congratulations to the Vidalia students who attended Georgia Music Educators Association District One Honor Chorus at Armstrong State University. These students proved their excellence in local auditions and were selected to participate in the clinic in Savannah for two grueling days of rehearsal culminating in a wonderful performance for their parents and peers.
Vidalia City Schools District Honor Chorus Singers: L-R: First Row: Mason Galbreath, Allie Whitaker, Joy McCullough, Landon Miller, Tavien Vogt. Second Row: Faith Futch, Ariel Sikes, Ashlynn Goodwin, Cameron White, Bryanna Beasley. Third Row: Walker Wheeler, Jaquan Johnson, Luke Stinnett, Landon Lindsay.
Students representing J. R. Trippe Middle School included Mason Galbreath, Ashlynn Goodwin, Jaquan Johnson, Ariel Sikes, Tavien Vogt, and Allie Whitaker.
Vidalia Comprehensive High School was well represented by Bryanna Beasley, Faith Futch, Landon Lindsay, Joy McCullough, Landon Miller, Luke Stinnett, Walker Wheeler, and Cameron White.
These students rehearsed for several weeks on the difficult and unfamiliar repertoire for the event, and represented our schools well in both their discipline and musical skills under the batons of master conductors. The concert was thrilling, and many choral parents attended the event Saturday afternoon.
John Morgan, Choral Director at J. R. Trippe and Vidalia High, also represented Vidalia City Schools, serving as accompanist at the piano for the Middle School Mixed District Honor Chorus. Mr. Morgan wishes to congratulate the students and thank the parents, chaperones, Principals John Sharpe and Dr. Sandy Reid, and the Vidalia City School System Board of Education for allowing these students to attend this memorable event.
