TMEA Region 11 held auditions this month for All-Region Choir. This year, two other regions were added to our small school region, making it three times as hard to earn a chair in the region choir. Auditioning makes our choir members stronger musicians, and earning a place in the region choir is a huge honor. To God be all the glory for giving us strength, skill, and His peace during auditions! I am so blessed by everyone from FBA who auditioned. FBA has a few students representing our school this year. They are the following:

Region 11 Mixed Choir (and also Pre-Area)

Haley Daugherty

Andrew Flanagan

John Hartman

Daniel Hooker

Please pray for the students above as they prepare for their All Region Concert at East Central High School’s Performing Arts Center (PAC) on November 3, and as they also prepare for pre-area auditions November 27 and in January to make it all the way to TMEA All-State Choir.
