FSHA's Choir Wins Best Female Choir at Competition

Vocum Veritas Choir Choral Win
Vocum Veritas and music teacher Mr. Mosley on stage after winning Best Female Choir at World Strides On Stage

In May 2017, Vocum Veritas traveled to San Diego and participated in a choral competition hosted by World Strides On Stage. In the women’s choral division there were six choirs. Vocum Veritas scored 95 percent, taking first place in their division. Overall, the group placed third out of 19 choirs. What’s notable is that our 22 girls beat out other choirs three times their size with much more experience. Because our ladies scored a 95 percent, they were invited to attend the National Choral Festival next spring in Chicago.
