Thirteen CHS choir students competed at Tuloso-Midway High School for their District Choir Auditions. Seven of the students placed in the top seven.

Senior Gracie Wernig placed first in Soprano 2.

“I was really confident when I performed,” Wernig said. “I knew I would probably place top 5.”

Gracie focused on reaching her goal of first chair by looking at her notes on her music sheets and remembering the advice her voice coach taught her.

“When I found out I got first I was so excited and relieved,” Wernig said.

Sabrina Smitka has been in choir for at least seven years. Her favorite part about competing at the District Choir Audition was meeting new people.

“All different schools are there and you don’t sing all day,” Smitka said. “So its a good time to make friends.”

Sabrina Smitka placed 4th in the Soprano 2 event. She has never placed in the top five, so her 4th place win was a huge accomplishment.

“I was tearing up because I have never placed so high,” she said. “I have only placed like 14th. I was blown away.”

The hardest part of performing for Smitka was staying on beat.

“The music goes really fast,” Smitka said. “It goes back to back to back, so its easy to get lost.”

Sabrina feels her win was a testament to her diligent preparation.

“I always have done Soprano 1, but I did Soprano 2 this year,” Smitka said. “I was just overall more prepared and less stressed.”
