GHS A Capella Choir Earns Division I and II Ratings at UIL Concert and Sight-reading Competition
On Wednesday, April 13, the Greenville High School A Capella
Mixed Choir traveled to Canton High School to compete in the UIL Concert and
Sight-reading Competition. Sixteen students represented GHS in the competition,
where they received a Division II rating in sight-reading and a Division I
rating in concert, which is the highest possible.
During the sight-reading portion of the competition,
students are given a piece of music to perform with no prior study. The piece
given will include six parts to be read simultaneously; tenor, baritone, bass,
soprano 1, soprano 2, and alto. GHS choir students received a Division II
rating on their sight-reading performance, which is considered “excellent”.
For the concert portion of the competition, the choir
performs several pieces that they have prepared for judging. The students
received a Division I rating for their concert performance, which is the
highest possible rating and is considered “superior”. Feedback from the judges
included praise such as “choral technique is near flawless!” and, “very clean,
expressive performance,” “beautiful balance and tone quality!”
“We are so very proud of the progress of the students this
year,” said Choir Director, Yvette Vasquez, “all of my students are excited
about our prospects for next year,” she said.
