Guidelines for participation in the VU Honor Chorus:
Each singer must be sponsored by their director (sponsoring directors must be ACDA members). The director submits all registration materials and payment on behalf of their singers.
Male voices must be CHANGED.
Singers must be the age of 15 or older as of August 2, 2018.
Directors should nominate singers who possess strong music reading skills, healthy tone quality, and a cooperative nature, including a willingness to work with a wide range of ages, and an aptitude for success in long rehearsals.
Directors, send one singer or your whole choir! Our vision is to bring together as many singers from as many choirs as possible to create an ensemble for fellowship, unity, and the opportunity to create beautiful choral music under the baton of a master conductor and teacher. Whether you are a high school director, community chorus director, church director, or simply love to sing, this ensemble will be an amazing event for all involved.
