“Ukuthula” notes from Dr. Fenton: Please learn the alto and soprano parts, and during the course of our time together, singers will be encouraged to improvise/harmonize.  I will select a soloist (or soloists) to lead during our time together. For pronunciation guide and downloadable scores (as well as more information about “Ukuthula”), please visit http://avoice4peace.org/sing-with-us

The CCDA/SCVA Honor Choirs are an amazing opportunity for school students from around the state of California to sing in select choirs under the direction of nationally and internationally known conductors. We have three Regional High School Honor Choir events, and an All-State High School and All-State Jr. High/9th Grade Honor Choir event.

If you are new to the honor choir process please visit our High School All-State page, or Junior High/9th Grade All-State page to learn more about the honor choir process and experience. We look forward to working with many new students,  teachers and directors this year.

Please watch this short video to orient yourself to the California Honor Choir process: Honor Choir Information
