This choir consisted of approximately 150 students from all throughout the state of Texas. Out of the over 800 entries, Lauren Ritchey, Kyla Papillion, and Ava Roberts were selected to perform with the honor choir. These students were the only MISD students selected to be a part of this elite group of singers….and they made ALIS history!

May 2015 elementary Choir Tour...Making ALIS history
For the first time in ALIS history, the choir went on tour, performing at the 3 elementary schools that feed into ALIS. What a treat to spend the day "on the road" singing our hearts out! We were well received by our audiences. I think this is a new tradition that we will want to continue!
January 2015:Keyboard Lab
Thanks to generous donations and an outstanding fall fundraiser, we were able to purchase 6 keyboards and stands for the choir. The students learned scales, sight reading, and short clips of songs which they applied to their spring music.
November 2014: ALIS CHOIR AWARDED A $1000 GRANT
Asa Low Intermediate School choir was the recipient of a $1000 grant from Texas Music Educators Association given to purchase sheet music. The grant was a part of the Middle School Music Instructional Support Program that TMEA offered this year. Applicants chose music that met certain criteria including: works that offer insight in to significant composers, works that have cultural, historical relevance as defined by TEKS, works that extend the technical demands and musical limitations normally associated with middle school repertoire, and works that can be related to other artistic genre such as dance, visual arts and literature. TMEA's executive board awarded $700,000 in grants to benefit middle school music programs all across the state of Texas this year. ALIS was the only Mansfield ISD school to receive this award.
