Throughout the year, there are a number of Honor Choirs that bring together outstanding choral students from throughout the state and region.  Students audition, are accepted, receive their music in advance, generally attend a regional rehearsal and then have a final rehearsal and concert.  Students who are accepted must commit to learn their music in advance and to attend all rehearsals and concerts. 

Links are provided below for more information.  Note that the SCVA site does not post a lot of information until closer to the date of auditions.  Please contact Mr. Huls or Nancy Lamell (This email address is being protected from spambots.
