Long practice hours and countless fine vocal tuning, the Texas FFA Chorus is ready to showcase their talent by performing in front of thousands of members and guests at the Texas FFA Convention.

For chorus member Jourdan Tucker, Maynard FFA, she knows firsthand the amount of work that goes into preparing for a chorus performance. 

“We come together about two days before convention starts and learn the music,” Tucker said. “We worked from 8 a.m. until 9 p.m. on Monday.”

According to Tucker, anyone who is interested, no matter the skill level, should give the chorus a chance. She has experienced how supportive the Texas FFA organization can be. 

“It’s FFA! If you mess up, they are going to clap. If you do well, they are going to clap,” Tucker said.

For Tomball FFA member, Lucas Phillips, this is his first year to perform with the chorus. He is more excited than nervous.

“I have done musicals my whole life so I’m not nervous,” Phillips said. “I’m very excited.”
Phillips discovered the chorus through his mother and older brother, a former chorus member. They thought it would be something he would enjoy. 

“There is thousands of people sitting out there and it is a chance to do what I love, in front of the people I love,” Phillips said.

For these two students being able to wear blue and gold is not just about representing agriculture and leadership, it’s an opportunity to showcase talents.
