This year, one of our Coal Ridge seniors, Alexis Bahena, went through a rigorous audition process including 3 stages of elimination to place into the elite All State Mixed Jazz Choir. The All State Mixed Jazz Choir sings in primarily 8 part vocal splits compared to most advanced choirs that sing in 4-6 part splits (wow!) Not only this, but Alexis was additionally selected as the featured soloist for the entire chart, "I Want You Back", which was backed up with the rest of the All State Mixed Jazz Choir and a professional Jazz Band. 

Here's what Alexis had to say about the opportunity:

"Participating in the Colorado All-State Jazz Choir was an honor that provided me valuable insights into vocal performance and the world of music. Upon learning that I was selected as a featured soloist for the concert, I felt a mix of both nervousness and immense gratitude. Although this opportunity required stepping out of my comfort zone, it turned out to be a defining experience for me. It fueled my passion to explore new musical opportunities and to continue pushing myself as a vocalist."

Congratulations Alexis!!! You make us more than proud!
