LCJH students attend, dominate Solo and Ensemble contest

Special to The Leader

LITTLE CYPRESS — Twelve Little Cypress Junior High Choir students attended the Texas Music Educator Association-sponsored Solo and Ensemble Contest on Jan. 26.

Each student prepared a solo and performed it from memory for a judge who gave them a written critique sheet and a rating. Nine soloists received superior ratings, the highest scores possible, and the remaining three received excellent ratings. For the second year in a row, eighth grader Chase Courtier was named “Outstanding Soloist.“
