2021 NC High School Honors Chorus
Honors Chorus is a great opportunity for students who are driven and want more choral experiences. Each year students from across the state learn the same piece and audition to be a part of a select group of singers. Typically only 120 - 150 students from across the state are chosen. If you are chosen to participate you will attend a 2 day workshop on November 6th and 7th in Winston - Salem, NC where will you will work with a renowned choral conductor and perform a concert in the beautiful Stevens Center. I will be giving students interested in auditioning music and information on the first day of school. There is a usually a registration fee of $15 for the audition that I ask students to pay, however any student that needs financial help with this fee let me know and I will make sure it is taken care of. The 2021 audition song is Veni Sancte Spiritus by Mozart.
The audition date for our district is Saturday, September 25, 2021, St. Luke's UMC, Hickory, NC. We will travel as a group to the audition from school.
Appalachian State University holds a Honors Chorus workshop each year to help students prepare for their audition. This years workshop is TBD. Students interested in going need to see me so that I can register everyone for the workshop. There is no cost involved with the workshop, but students will need money for lunch.
