THS Chamber Choir: A tradition of excellence

2014-div-conf-ad-495wEvery two years, the Northwest Division of the American Choral Directors’ Association holds a convention.  This division covers the six northwestern states (Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming), and hundreds of professional choir directors will attend.  As part of the convention, some of the best choirs in the northwest are invited to perform.  These are choirs that represent the true pinnacle of our art form.  Many of the groups are adult professional level, but there are also some university level choirs and a few public school choirs.  Only three high school choirs were selected to perform, and our THS Chamber Choir is one of them!  This is about the highest honor a high school choir can receive.  

The audition process requires recordings from the past three years in order to show a tradition of excellence (and not just one lucky year), and then selections are made by a panel of experts based solely on what they hear (they don’t know who they are listening to).  The THS Chamber Choir will perform at Seattle’s historic Town Hall in March as part of the convention.
