Auditions and Honor Choirs
We believe strongly that vocal success is a journey not a destination. The opportunity to perform in either of Armstrong's top ensembles, Concert Choir or Cantori, can be amazing. It is up to the Directors to determine the ensemble placement for each student based upon their audition scores, not upon their level of passion, emotion, and desire. We work diligently and sincerely to place each student into the ensemble that best serves his or her individual needs and the goals of this educational program.
Similarly, the opportunity to participate in honor choirs throughout the state and nation is a wonderful way to experience new music, new directors, and meet new singers. For these opportunities, competition is high, but the reward is worth the risk. Armstrong Directors are not involved in these selection processes. Instead, the organizations that sponsor the event are responsible for assigning membership. Armstrong takes great pride in student participation in these venues such as MN 9-10 ACDA Honor Choir, MN All-State, and others.
