SYLACAUGA, Ala. – As the Sylacauga High School Choral Music program continues to grow, student singers are letting their voices be heard around the state. Twenty students recently auditioned and thirteen were accepted for the All-State Honor Choir. This is the highest honor high school choral students can receive. These talented performers will now participate in the state’s largest honor choir festival at Samford University in March 2018.

Additionally, senior Evan Garris was named the winner of the Alabama Vocal Association Music Education Interview competition for District IV. He will go on to compete at the state level in January.

The Choral Music program is under the direction of teacher Martez Tidwell, who re-established the program four years ago.

Students who were selected to participate in the Alabama All-State Choral Festival are Melanee Campbell, Danielle Hanrahan, Connor Andrews, Caitlyn Wykoff, Ivana Taylor, Carson Dickerson, Matthew Bryan, Johnathon McGregor, Landon Owen, Evan Garris, Austin Allen, Rachel Kidd, and Taylor Allen (not pictured.)

Congratulations to these SHS students for their selection to the All-State Honor Choir.
