Congratulations to Walton Chorus!

Congratulations to all Choirs for stellar performances at the Georgia Music Educators Association District XII High School Choral Evaluations!  Our eight choirs earned 28 Superior ratings (the highest possible) in performance and music reading and 4 Excellent ratings (next highest).  We are incredibly proud of the tradition of outstanding choral performance and music reading our students displayed.  Many thanks to our amazing Boosters, Student Leaders and Parents who moved, fed and made sure all students looked as good as they sounded.  It was a wonderful day for Walton chorus and the judges and clinicians were effusive in their praise of our work.
