    I participated in TBASC in 1984 and 1985. I just found this website so I hope it is not to late to receive an invitation. Please give me a call.

    I was a member in 93 and 94. If it’s to late for this one, I’d love to get an invite for the next one. TBAS was the best experience I’ve ever had the privilege of being a part of.

    I wish I would have known about this! I guess that’s what happens when you grow up and move out of state:) The 3 summers I spent in Texas Baptist All-State Choir (and Handbells!) were some of the best moments of my high school years. It amazes me as I keep coming across some of the anthems we sang back then through out my college years and even now in my “adult choir” at my church. “I thank my God when I remember you.” Indeed.

    I participated in 1985 or 1986 in the same year Jill Shirley sang with ably “I’ve Just Seen Jesus”

    I was a member of the soprano section of the choir during the summers of ’77 and ’78. I met the most fantastic, talented, and gifted people…and a very good friend! Beautiful music, proper training, singing for God…nothing better!

  9. Kathleen Frankovich says:

    I was also there in 78 and 79! Loved my time with the choir. We made an album and I put it on my ipod and STILL listen to it! Not the best recording but the songs still give me goosebumps :) So sorry I didn’t know about this reunion.
