Judson Voices Sing In New Men's Choir Event

On Sunday, Nov 18th, the Judson High School Men took part in a brand new festival for male choir students at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts. This event, called “Boys To Men” was presented by the Children’s Chorus of San Antonio, and featured choirs from local middle and high schools. Special guests were two professional San Antonio men's choirs, Illumen and The Marcsmen. The concert culminated in a 400-voice choir conducted by Dr. Ryan Garrison of the CCSA, Dr. Gary Seighman of Trinity University, and Judson’s own choir director, David Short! The Judson men shined on stage and showed Rocket Pride throughout the day-long clinic. Way to go Judson Choir

Recently Judson High School choir members participated in the Texas Music Educators Association Region 11 Clinic and Concert. Twenty Judson Rockets were selected to participate in this event, and they enjoyed making music among their fellow honored musicians. They worked with Dr. Mark Aaron Humphrey of St. Mary’s University and Dr. John May, former Fine Arts Director of SAISD. Thirteen of the Judson choir members will be moving on to the next level of competition in December. Way to go Judson!


Rocket Choir Sings To Highest Marks

The Judson Choirs recently competed in the UIL Region 11 Choir Concert and Sight Reading Contest and did incredibly well.  The event was hosted at Judson High School and with four Rocket choirs participating it was a busy day, but well worth it.  Every Judson group earned the highest rating of Sweepstakes and received a Superior rating from every judge.  These are quality groups under great direction.  Directors are David Short and Tiffany Cristo.  Congratulations.
