4th and 5th grade students have an opportunity to audition each year for the Kentucky Music Educators District 8 Honors Choir. This chorus was set up specifically for elementary students and is made up of singers from all over the north eastern area of Kentucky.
I begin auditioning students right after Christmas break. This is not a required activity but it is a great opportunity for students to perform with other talented singers.
There are commitments on your part if you choose to let your child audition. These commitments are:
- Pay the registration fee for the chorus (approximately $35.00). This fee includes lunch on the day of the event, a t-shirt and sheet music.
- Transportation the day of the event.
- Students may ride the bus to and from this event. We will meet at Cannonsburg Elementary School at approximately 6:45 a.m. on the day of the event and ride the bus from there.
- Each family may choose to transport their own child to and from the event. You will need to be at the performance school (to be announced, possibly Mason County Intermediate School) no later than 8:30am. The concert that evening will conclude around 6:00pm.
- You may choose to allow your child to ride the bus to the event and then transport them home after the concert. This choice will allow you to drive down later to join us instead of spending the entire day while we rehearse.
