Ford HS Choir

 

About Our Choirs


The Ford High School Choir Program consists of two Varsity ensembles:  A Cappella (Mixed) Choir and Trebleaires (Women's Choir), a Show Choir and three sections of Non-Varsity Choirs.  The Thompson Middle School Program has a Varsity Mixed Choir and four Non-Varsity classes.  These talented students have proven themselves many times over with their successes in competition - winning places in the TMEA All Region Choirs,  and representing our District at UIL Texas State Solo & Ensemble Contest and UIL Concert and Sight Reading Contest.  In the past few years they have earned many Superior and Excellent ratings and four Outstanding Performer Awards from UIL, and several students have won scholarships to Texas Universities to continue their music studies.

"Always so proud of their talent, work ethic and their drive to be successful!" said QISD Director of Choirs, Judith McCarty.

For the FIRST time in school history - TWO FHS Students earn 1st and 2nd Chair in the 2017 All-State Choir

"For the first time ever, FHS will have two student members of an All-State Choir (three if alternates are called up!) Bradlie Clem is 2nd Alternate Soprano, Sydney Short made 2nd Chair Soprano, and Tad Serrano won 1st Chair Bass in the All-State Small School Choir," said Judith McCarty, QISD Director of Choirs.

Congratulations to these students for their talent, and especially for their work ethic! Pictured are Sydney Short, Tad Serrano, Bradlie Clem and McCarty.
