The Portales News-Tribune reported that more than 1,000 high school students from dozens of schools in New Mexico and Texas showed up Saturday morning before 7 a.m. for the 11th annual choral clinic at Eastern New Mexico University. Under the direction of George E. Umberson, chairman of ENMU’s vocal department, the vocalists kept to a split second schedule that saw them register, be assigned to rooms, perform individually and then show up for massed choir rehearsal in the P.E. complex.
