DeSoto High School added two All-State Choir Members — Brayla Cook (Junior) & Juliana Simonfalvi (Freshman) - after the January 7 competition in Waco! Brayla made the All-State Mixed Choir in Alto 1 (the top ensemble in Texas). Juliana made the All-State Treble Choir as a Soprano 1 (the top female ensemble in Texas).
DHS has only had two All-State Choir members in the past; 1995 - Treylyn Merritt and 2014 - Marcus McGarity. Juliana Simonfalvi's mother, Rebecca, was All-State in band for DeSoto ISD in 1993!
DHS had five students total qualify for the Area event, and one of those students also qualified for the band Area event. Samuel Orta, qualified for Area in both band (flute) and choir (Tenor 1). Byron Hanspard, Jr. qualified for Area in choir (Bass 2) and Montavion McKinney qualified for Area in choir (Tenor 1). We are proud of all 45 singers from DHS who participated in the All-State process this year.
