VIDALIA SINGERS SHINE IN SAVANNAH
Posted On:
Tuesday, March 19, 2019

March 16-- Vidalia Comprehensive High School’s Show Choir and J. R. Trippe Advanced Chorus attended the Georgia Music Educators Association (GMEA) District One Large Group Performance Evaluation (LGPE) Wednesday and came home with the highest ratings awarded in performance and sight-reading.

Vidalia City School System was one of two school districts classified (by the GHSA) as AA (school enrollment size) to have a choir representing VCSS at the event. In fact, VCSS was represented with both Middle and High School choirs. One other AA school system, Screven County, had middle school and elementary school choirs sing at the event, while Vidalia High was the only AA high school choral program represented at LGPE in the entire GMEA District.

 

The Vidalia Show Choir received a Superior (I) rating in their performance of a “split program” of Class B and Class C literature, including “Soon Ah Will Be Done,” a spiritual arranged by William Dawson, and “Jesu Dulcis Memoria” by Vijay Singh, sung in Latin. Both pieces were performed from memory and A Cappella for the judges, who awarded the highest rating. Judges’ comments included “…fine crafting throughout,” and, “…you sing very expressively.” Former VCSS Choral Director Sarah Montford helped prepare the choir for performance with expert advice, and accompanied the choir on their trip to perform. The VCHS Choir then received an additional Superior (I) rating on their sight-singing adjudication, having only five minutes to prepare and sing an A Cappella piece they had never seen before.

Members of the VCHS choir who participated in the 2019 performance evaluation were: Bryanna Beasley, Makynna Beasley, Canyon Beck, Emma Braddy, Cheylyn Cowart, Miguel Cruz, Faith Futch, Ashlynn Goodwin, Kaylie Gunter, Kolby Hulett, Angel Humphrey, Landon Lindsay, Kylie McCoy, Joy McCullough, Landon Miller, Reagan Miller, Makenna Rakes, All-State Chorus Member Luke Stinnett, Lyric Wardlaw, and All-State Chorus Member Walker Wheeler.

For the first time in many years, J. R. Trippe Middle School also sent a choir to the LGPE event and received a Superior rating.  The choir, accompanied by Sarah Montford, performed “Didn’t My Lord Deliver Daniel,” a traditional spiritual arranged by Roger Emerson, and “Deo Dicamus Gratias” by Victor C. Johnson, singing the latter piece in Latin.

The choir sang beautifully, and the judges awarded a Superior (I) Rating in performance, with comments such as “…nuanced performance,” “…fine interpretation,” “…some lovely phrasing in both pieces,” and “…well-prepared.”  JRTMS chorus also received a Superior (I) Rating from Sight Reading Judge, proving that their lifelong journey to musicianship is not merely learning repertoire, but gaining the skills to master music reading.

Thirty-eight students participated in LGPE from JRTMS. They were: Aylin Angel, LaLane Angeles, Andrea Battle, Saraiah Bauldwin, Sophia Cabe, Angie Cardinal, Ethan Chambers, Josie Conner, Trendon Darden, Andrew Davis, Micah Davis-Brown, Kaya Day, Laura Googe, Emilie Greenwald, All-State Chorus Member Autumn Harris, Racheal Hayes, Emily Helms, Kaleigh Howard, Jaquan Johnson, Angelina Kicklighter, Mackinzie Lyles, Emily Moran, Joel Munoz-Rosa, Belle Ogle, Cailey Oliver, Meghan  Onate-Leon, Amy Palma, Jayla Phillips, Mikayla Powell, Kailie Query, Savannah Sikes, Keishay Smith, Morgan Strange, Olivia Taylor, Anevya Vann, Ja'Via Walton, All-State Chorus Member Landry Wheeler, and Hannah Wood.

John F. Morgan, VCSS Choral Director, expresses gratitude to each chorus student for their dedication to musical excellence. Morgan also expressed thanks to the chorus parents, to Sarah Montford (accompanist), to Superintendent Dr. Garrett Wilcox, the Vidalia City Schools Board of Education, VCHS Principal John Sharpe and JRTMS Principal Dr. Sandy Reid.
