Show choirs have impressive weekend


The show choirs of Tallassee High School had another great weekend, this time at the Southern Showcase in Opelika. 

Keep in mind, we are the smallest school to participate in these events - most are 7A and 6A size high schools. This made it even more amazing that we had a student recognized in a very special way! 


Sarah Jane Patterson of Tallassee Voltage was “Best Soloist” Grand Champion at the competition!

Tallassee Voltage won 2nd Place in the Small Mixed category.
