Judson Sends 30 To TMEA Choir Clinic

Judson High School hosted the TMEA Region 11 Honor Choir Clinic and Concert recently and it was a great experience for some wonderful singers.  These students were selected from schools all across San Antonio to work with Dr. Joey Martin of Texas State University, Dr. Gary Mabry of UTSA and Dr. Ryan Garrison of the Children's Chorus of San Antonio. 30 Judson High School students were selected for this great honor and it resulted in some fantastic music.  

Judson Choir Makes Big Impact At Regionals

Judson High School's Chorale students took their talents to the TMEA (Texas Music Educators Association) Region 11 Mixed Choir auditions.  Among hundreds of other choir students across San Antonio and south Texas, these Rockets really shined.  Judson placed the most singers out of the 20 other schools competing.  33 students from Judson earned a place in this prestigious group.  24 of those Judson singers were ranked in the top 10 in their respective audition room.  That means they qualify to move on to the Pre-Area competition coming in November. Congratulations everyone and good luck!

One judge commented, “Beautiful singing in every respect. What a pleasure to hear your performance today. Your work is of the highest quality, and a tribute to your wonderful director and the tradition of excellence in the choral music program at Judson High School.” Way to go choir!

Video: Kay Sherrill Choir Hall Dedication

She was the Judson High School Choir Director from 1998-2016. During that time, Kathryn (Kay) Sherrill helped and influenced so many students to explore their musical talents and in the process gave them the confidence that a student needs at a crucial time in life.  She brought state and even national recognition to the school’s music program and grew it into a vibrant group of students that always wanted to give their best and gave a first class performance each time.

Ms. Sherrill was invited back to the school recently as the guest of honor for the dedication of the campus choir room. It was a special ceremony with a lot of singing and strolling down memory lane, even with some former students. If you missed the ceremony, we’ve included a video that will bring you the essence of this deserved honor.
