6-7-8-9 Honors Choir

Participation in Honors Choirs is by audition for students who are members in good standing in their school’s vocal music program and whose schools are  MSVMA members. SA Honors Choir is organized for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. SSA and TTB Honors Choirs are composed of 7th, 8th and 9th grade students.

Each school can send up to 32 singers, but no more than 24 singers per SSA, or TTB ensemble or 16 SA singers is allowed.  


Audition Information

  • Regional Auditions will be individual online auditions.
  • Students will submit one video audition. 
  • Singers will select the choir they are auditioning for SA, SSA or TTB and learn the appropriate audition song that coincides with their choir.  The SA and TTB will audition with the accompaniment and SSA will be a cappella.  
  • Singers 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. The clinic and audition pieces are to be prepared in advance of the regional day. The audition piece is to be memorized. 
  • 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 singers. Music will be given out during the first rehearsal.
