RECHS Choir Soprano Marissa Vasquez represented Robstown Early College HS and Robstown ISD at the TMEA Area level of competition on Saturday, January 11, at Cuero High School.
At the Area competition, Marisa competed against 23 other sopranos; she had to learn a piece in Russian ("There is No Other Help But Thee" is the English title) and a 33 page Latin piece ("Kyrie"). Marisa did not know which parts of the songs she would have to sing until the day of the competition. Also, as part of her audition, Marisa also had to sight-sing a very difficult exercise with only 30 seconds of study allowed.
Marisa ranked 10 out of 24 in her audition; she was only 6 chairs away from advancing to the All-State Choir!
Please congratulate Marisa on her outstanding accomplishment! Marisa is the daughter of Nick and Yvonne Vasquez; Mr. Vasquez is a math teacher at RECHS.
