MS 6-8th Tenor-Bass Singers WFAA – GPISD Fine Arts ” The Experience” TV spotlight February 23,2023


We have an incredible opportunity happening this Thursday. The district has asked Vocal Music MS Tenor-Bass students to participate in a WFAA spotlight promoting the GPISD Experience. This week WFAA (ABC Channel 8) will spotlight GPISD Fine Arts. Our students will collaborate with GPFAA Mariachi, performing Hoy Tengo Ganas De Ti (performed at TMEA). Please make sure your student looks look TV ready! All additional information is listed below! I am out with the HS Tenor-Basses in Cincinnati for the ACDA invitational performance this week, so Ms. Galindo or I will not be present. Mr.Shaw will be their point person. Our students will be great and excited to see the final product. Please feel free to contact Mr. Shaw at tyron.shaw@gpisd.org or me.
