Four of our Veterans Memorial choir students participated in the first round of the TMEA All-State Choir audition process. Every year approximately 14,000 high school singers begin this audition process which accepts only the top 300 singers across the state. I am proud to say that two of our VMHS singers placed with Drew Collier(10th grade) placing 7th chair in the Tenor 2 section and Jason Hayashi(12th grade) placing 1st chair in the Alto 2 section. These students will present a concert with the other winners in our region on November 2nd, and will also sing in the semi final contest in late November. They must score in the top 5 positions at semi-finals in order to advance to the final round.
