“Why do we sing? Because words were not enough.”
These are the words TCHS Varsity Women’s Choir took on to the stage at UIL Concert and Sight Reading this week at First United Methodist Church in Dickinson. After a year of unprecedented hurdles, this group found its way back to Texas City with straight superior ratings on both the stage and in the sight reading room. There were few dry eyes in the sanctuary following their three-song set, and even a few tears in the sight reading room. None of it would be possible without our amazing voice teachers, incredible staff across the district and the community.
“In moments of doubt this year, the students of TCHS Choir have reminded each other and myself that art comes from the deepest of trials, and this year has been ripe with experiences to feed the artistic souls of these young women,” Texas City High School choir director Matthew Taylor. “Ms. (Eliza) Nicholson and myself are eternally proud of their work ethic and emotional endurance. Thank you ladies. And thank you Texas City ISD,” he added.
