Students may audition only once. Singers will audition in SA duets, SSA trios or TTB trios for the Honors Choirs. Singers will be allowed to audition in SS or SA duet in the absence of a SSA trio and in TT or TB duet in the absence of a TTB trio. Singers will be adjudicated on an individual basis allowing students to be selected for the State Honors Choir from their duet or trio.
Each SA and TTB entry will be able to download an accompaniment recording that will be used in the audition. SSA auditions will be a cappella.
New for the 2018-19 year. All Auditions will be completed ONLINE. Those auditioning are required to attend the rehearsal with an Honors Choir director in a clinic situation and perform in the regional concert to be considered for the State Honors Choir.

Audition results, forms, and general information will be emailed to the directors within three working days after the regional performance. It is the director’s responsibility to print as many forms as necessary for his/her singers. Music will be given out during the first rehearsal.
