Treble & Chamber Choirs Earn Distinguished Rating! Chamber & Treble Choirs

We are very proud to announce that our Treble Choir and Chamber Choir earned straight distinguished ratings at KMEA Performance Assessment yesterday. Each choir sang three pieces for adjudication by the stage judges. After that, they were given 3 minutes to study a brand new piece of music and perform it on the spot. I'm happy to say that they rocked both!!! Both groups scored a 39 out of 40 on sight singing! And to make it even better, our students positively represented Dixie by modeling professional concert etiquette and behavior both on and off the stage. What an awesome day! If you see a choir kiddo, give them a pat on the back. They worked hard and did great!
