The Alcorn Central High School Golden Voices, under the direction of Mrs. Tina Downs, have been busy this school year! On September 25 and 26, Maura Gunther, Brendan Wilkins, Jaden Dilworth, Luke Jones, Maria Price and Isabel Goad represented ACHS at the Southern Invitational Choral Conference held at the University of Southern Mississippi in a concert of over 400 voices!

On October 14, Luke Jones and Brendan Wilkins attended the Male Vocal Symposium held at Ridgeland High School. The event consisted of only male voices from across the State of Mississippi, meeting for the first time on October 14 and then performing an afternoon concert.

On October 26, the ACHS Golden Voices joined with choral students from across District I for the 2017 Mass Choir, hosted by and on the campus of Northeast Mississippi Community College.

The Golden Voices and the ACHS Sextet continued "Superior" tradition by earning the highest ratings at the State Performance Assessment. Special thanks to Bro. Jim Pinkston for accompanying the group. Congratulations!

Luke Jones auditioned for the All-State Honor Choir in January. He is the first student from the Alcorn County School District to win a seat in 13 years! The choir consists of the best voices from across the State of Mississippi. They met together at the University of Southern Mississippi and performed March 25 under the direction of guest clinician, Dr. Julie Yu, from Kansas State University.
