Six Panola College students auditioned and were selected to perform with the 2019 Texas Two-Year College All State Choir.

“I am so proud of these fine singers,” said Sandra Bauer, director of vocal music at Panola College. “They worked hard to prepare for the audition, and I’m thrilled that they were selected for this honor.”

The students include Aaron Tello, Center, Bass 2; Kacia Johnson, Tatum, Alto 2; Loren Caserta, Beckville, Soprano 2; Nichole Painter, Marshall, Soprano 1; Sydnee Taylor, Carthage, Alto 1, and Hunter Moon, Beckville, Tenor 1.

The students will join other college singers from across Texas at the 2019 TMEA Clinic and Convention, February 13-16, at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio.

Bauer is serving as president of the Texas Two-Year College Choral Directors Association for 2018-2019. “It’s quite an accomplishment to be selected as All-State Choir members. At this event in February, my students will have the opportunity to meet other college musicians and learn from some of the best in the state.”
