Choir competed Dallas, TX, at the Heritage Festival on April 4, a nation-wide tournament.

On this trip, led by teacher Scott Kinworthy, the choir did several things while also performing for the Heritage Festival audience.
Also on the way to Texas, the choirs performed at Drury University and Missouri State University.

The choir viewed the Dallas area, checking out the Cowboys football stadium, the Hard Rock Cafe and Six Flags.
The choir won the Sweepstakes Award for having the overall highest score.

Also, the Chamber, Concert and Women’s choirs won first place in their divisions.

The Chamber and Concert Choirs each brought home an Adjudicator’s Award for their scores averaging a 95 or higher.

The Chamber Choir also received the Outstanding Choral Award for having the highest score in the entire festival.

“The choirs performed exceptionally well,” Kinworthy said.

Corey Dunlap, freshman, attended the choir trip and had a great time. “It was fun; I had a good time. It was great to represent Webster and bring home some trophies.” Dunlap performed in the concert choir.

According to Kinworthy, the choir is considering competing next year in New York.
