MARBLE FALLS — For the fifth year in a row, the Marble Falls Middle School choir brought home the coveted Sweepstakes Award from the University Interscholastic League middle school competition.
All four of the school’s choirs — the Cantare Performers, Men’s Select Choir, Varsity Women’s Choir and Women’s Chorale — earned sweepstakes honor during the UIL contest March 9-10 at Georgetown High School.
“The Sweepstakes Award is the most coveted UIL award a choir, band or orchestra can win,” choir director Megan Goodman said.
A choir must receive “superior” ratings of “ones” in both their stage and sight-reading performances to earn a Sweepstakes Award.
The choirs perform before a panel of three judges during the competition. The sight-reading contest is particularly challenging because the students must perform a song they’ve never seen before.
“Angela Williamson, our associate director, and I are very proud of our students’ accomplishments,” Goodman added.
