CRESTVIEW — Following the Crestview High School chorus’ awarded “excellents” and "superiors" in district competition Feb. 28 at First Baptist Church of Milton, the women's chorus will perform May 3 at the state choral music competition in Tallahassee.

Under direction of Kevin Lusk, the school's choral music director, the women scored a superior for their stage performance at district, and garnered an excellent in sight-reading. Judges awarded them an overall superior, clinching their spot on the state performance program.

The men's chorus — which reportedly lost several members leading up to district competition — earned an excellent for their stage performance and a superior in sight-reading, scoring an overall excellent.

"Chorale got straight excellents on stage and in sight reading," senior and section leader Alex Andrews said. "Although the men and Chorale are not eligible for state, I still feel like we did great at district. We had pretty tough judges this year."

The chorus' all-female Destiny and Chanticleer show choirs, along with the solo and ensemble groups, will perform at the state choral music festival in Jacksonville on March 17, Alex said.

Upon their return, some chorus members who also belong to the school's International Thespian Society chapter will depart the state Thespian gathering.

"As soon as we get back from [state choral competition] on Monday, Tuesday the Thespians will be going to state in Tampa through the next Sunday," Alex said. "That will be a busy week!"
