The Marble Falls High School Choirs traveled to Boerne Champion High School Wednesday, April 19th, to compete in the University Interscholastic League (UIL) Region 29 Concert and Sight-reading Contest. After 5 ½ hours of performing and listening to choirs from other schools, MFHS Choir Director, Bryce Gage, learned that all three of his choirs (Varsity Mixed, Non-Varsity mixed, and Non-Varsity Treble) earned Division I ratings in both Concert and Sight-reading competitions. Choirs who achieve top ratings in both competitions earn Sweepstakes Awards, the highest achievement possible in the Spring UIL competition.
“The judges’ comments resounded with compliments about our choirs’ musicality, attention to details, beautifully mature tone, and vocal finesse,” said MFHS Choir Director, Bryce Gage. “Our students performed at that high level because I am blessed with the best kids who work incredibly hard. It's also been incredible to bring Emily Evans on to the team as the Assistant Choir Director. She has brought such high energy and expectations of excellence!”
While passionate about promoting his Choirs and staff, Gage is sometimes modest in his Direction of the Choir Program. He even passed along the credit for recently winning the award for the best musical direction at the Greater Austin High School Musical Theatre Awards (the local version of the Tony Awards, honoring Broadway productions).
