Four choir vocalists had the opportunity to compete amongst the best in the state at All State. Qualifying only after a high score at regions, the four made the trip to UT Austin over Memorial Day weekend.

“It was a very high level of representation for Liberty High School. These girls were four out of about 12,000 students who perform in Austin over the Memorial Day holiday,” choir director Bruce Stevenson said via email. “Three of the four earned a 1 on their solo, which is the highest score a student can receive.  It means they performed their solo to a ‘Superior’ level. The fourth singer received a 2.”

Advancing for her third year in a row, junior Jessica Gordon achieved the highest rating and plans to utilize her feedback for next year.

“I got the highest score at state as well,” Gordon said. “She gave me good input based on my songs and what I can improve and stuff based on future competitions. Just apply those to other songs that I’ll compete with so I can try to get other high scores.”

Stevenson believes the students’ performance was a good testimony to the school’s choir program and represents their hard work well.

“I’m very proud of the four girls who sang at State Solo & Ensemble Contest in Austin on Saturday,” Stevenson said via email. “They represented themselves and Liberty in a very positive, accomplished way.”
