Posted by Communications at 2/15/2017
The TGB Concert Choir participated in the Northern Arizona University Jazz & Madrigal Festival this weekend. The top choral festival in Arizona attracted 129 schools from Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah, and New Mexico. The Concert Choir received the Highest Possible Score: “Superior with Distinction.” This means that not only did they receive a “Superior” for their overall score, but they earned a “Superior” in all judging categories.
Concert Choir sang a set of three songs-- a secular villanelle, All Ye Who Music Love, written in Italy in the mid-1500s; a sacred motet, Ave Maria by Jacobus Handl-Gallus, written in the late 1500s; and they closed with a Cuban folk song for which band director Mike Rebb performed percussion.
The TGB Concert Choir also worked with Dr. Angela Broeker from the University of St. Thomas following their performance. She praised the Concert Choir members for their diligent work, artistic expression, and overall performance.
The successful program is supported by 24 TGB staff members who donated a portion of their 2016 Arizona Education Tax Credit to support these 50 students.
The Trevor Browne JROTC Rifle Team competed in the JROTC Regional Rifle Match held in Las Vegas, February 10-11, and based on their performance the team is currently ranked 10th in the United States. Cadet Angel Nunez took second overall, out of 175 shooters. He is ranked second in the nation and will represent Trevor Browne at the National Competition, March 22-26 in Anniston Alabama. Nunez also received the nation’s highest marksmanship award, the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s Distinguished Shooting Medal. He is the second Trevor Browne student to ever win this medal. He plans to continue his shooting career in college.
