Words cannot describe the beauty of these sweet voices blending together from all these children from across the states. What purity and innocence! Emma had this great opportunity to sing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir! It was truly amazing! Thank you Clarissa M. Miller for your dedication!

It was beyond words and an evening that I know many will not soon forget! These kids come from all over the US from elite and community choirs that practice countless hours. But no group came with 15 from one elementary school in Cookeville, TN!! Our music teacher, Clarissa Miller is above and beyond.
Children’s Honor Capshaw kids singing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and special guests Sylvia McNair and Santino Fontana who just happened to be the voice of Frozen’s Prince Hans.
And with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
Words fall short to describe my thoughts and emotions on tonight’s performance. Simply amazing. ACDA honor choir singing with The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, a special lifetime achievement completed in 4th grade for our Capshaw crew!
From our Music Teacher:
I am always proud of my students, but last week was perhaps one of the most rewarding of my career. To have fifteen children accepted to the National Children’s Honor Choir…the only chosen from TN, and the most singers from any one choir….doesn’t happen often. To see my children on the stage with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and standing among 300 selected singers out of 3500 who auditioned made me weep before they sang a note. To see them sitting tall in rehearsal and NEVER complaining after practicing for over eight hours each day is more than you could ever ask of a young musician. My parents were there to help our children and children they didn’t even know as soon as I sent a text.To say I’m proud doesn’t begin to express how I feel about these children…..my Capshaw family. To thank the parents wouldn’t begin to express my gratitude. So, I will just say that this experience will be something I will carry with me always. And each of you will forever be a part of my heart.
