Texas State Solo & Ensemble Competition
Choir groups have two main performances a year. One in the Fall, and the other in the Spring. All choir members are expected to perform in both of these events. There are multiple opportunities for choir members to compete; Region XI Treble Auditions, UIL Solo & Ensemble and UIL Concert and Sightreading. These competitions are required for Letterman Jacket eligibility.
