Here are the city wide rehearsals scheduled so far to help prepare you for Honors Choir. Please attend as many as possible! That will help you to be less stressed if your quartet is chosen to be spot checked.
They also have rehearsal tracks on their website. Take advantage of that.
Here are the rehearsals:
LHS Monday, June 26th, 3:30-5:30 PM
