Congratulations, Top Women's Choir and Summer 2017
For the first time in 15 years, a choir at Akins High School earned sweepstakes ratings at UIL Concert and Sight Reading Assessment. I am overjoyed and am so glad that I got to spend this year with some phenomenal students that made fantastic music. We were recognized at the 2017 Graduation, with Dr. Cruz singing our praises. The information is also posted on the Akins High School Graduation Page on AISD's main website. See here: https://www.austinisd.org/announcements/akins-high-school-bids-farewell-class-2017
Thank you to the Orchestra director at our school, Paul Crockett, for being such a steady force in such a turbulent semester. Students, you have no idea how much Mr. Crockett did for you this Spring, and he deserves a standing ovation for his commitment to helping those around him, especially Madrigal Choir.
Thank you to the administration here on campus as well. You have been so supportive of me during my maternity leave, and I cannot thank you enough! Thank you most of all to the students and parents that were so flexible during this year. I know there was a lot of ups and downs, and everyone was so wonderful about being flexible. Thank you!
This summer, we are hosting our annual Madrigal Camp the week of July 24th-28th. Students will be learning music for the 2017 Madrigal Dinner and shooting a promotional video. Grab your tickets now! Last year we sold out. You can order them at http://akinschoir.ludustickets.com/index.php, or click the link in the navigation at the top of the page.
That's all for now! Can't wait to see everyone August 21st for the first day of school!
