Borger High School All-District Small School Choir Audition Results 

TMEA, Texas Music Educators Association, sponsors the Texas All-State audition process to promote students' dedication to their musical knowledge and skill and to encourage TMEA member directors to support their students in this development. Beginning each fall, over 70,000 high school students across the state audition in their TMEA Region. Individual musicians perform selected music for a panel of judges who rank each instrument or voice part. A select group of musicians advances to compete against musicians from other Regions in their TMEA Area. The highest-ranking musicians judged at the TMEA Area competitions qualify to perform in one of 15 Texas All-State Bands, Orchestras, and Choirs. These All-State ensembles rehearse for three days, directed by nationally recognized conductors, and perform on the closing day of the annual TMEA Clinic/Convention.


The All-State audition process for high school choir students leads ultimately to qualification in one of four All-State Choirs that perform at the annual TMEA Clinic/Convention: Treble Choir, Tenor-Bass Choir, Mixed Choir, and Small School Mixed Choir. Students attending 1A-6A schools are eligible to audition for any choir, but only 4A down to 1A may audition for the Small School Mixed Choir. Since the creation of the Small School Mixed Choir in 2015, the Borger HS choir students have auditioned for the Small School Mixed Choir.  


On September 22, 2018, Borger HS Choir students competed in the All-District Small School Choir Auditions at Pampa High School. This contest can include choir students from any public or private school district, as well as, homeschool students, in the Texas Panhandle north of Plainview. At this contest, the top thirty-two students in each section, soprano, alto, tenor, bass, were selected to move on to the All-Region Choir Audition.
