Region 20 Honor Choir Audition Materials 2018

This is the official listing of the Region 20 Vocal Division JH/MS Honor Choir Audition Material.  All amendments, corrections and errata will become official only when it is published here.  Auditions will be held January 20 at Young Women's Leadership Academy @ Bill Arnold MS.  For singers to audition they must be a 6th, 7th, or 8th grader in Region 20 and plan to sing at the Clinic and Concert on February 10th at Irving Nimitz HS.

While we strive for perfection, there are occasionally minor issues within rehearsal tracks. Please alert Nyadia Thorpe (nthorpe@wisd.org) and Colton Blake (colton.blake@chisd.net) of any ERRATA and region leadership will try to avoid those measures in audition cuts or will inform judges of how to judge those moments.  Thank You!
