Regional Honors Choirs
The High School Honors Choir program offers Regional Honors Choirs, State Honors Choirs and an All-State Honors Choir.
The Regional Honors Choirs program includes:
Singers will audition online individually on their own voice part. The audition piece must be sung in its entirety without accompaniment. Please refer to the instructions and guidelines found on the acceptd website below.
To begin the 2021 school year, Michigan School Vocal Music Association will abide by the Covid safety guidelines published by the International Coalition Performing Arts Aerosol Study, August 12, 2021, and the National Federation of High School Associations.
These guidelines are minimums and are subject to host site school and county requirements.
In each region, a choir will be chosen with a maximum of 170 singers. Participating schools will be notified of the audition results by email. Individual scores will not be released.
Singers chosen for the Regional Honors Choirs will rehearse and perform in December. The repertoire will be the same in all regions including the regional audition selection, two SSAA selections, two TTBB selections and one SATB selection. A performance will take place at the end of the day.
