District Honour Choir 10 (open to students in Grade 7-12)

District Honour Choir 10 is offered to students in Grades 7-12 across the West Vancouver School District who show a talent for and interest in choral singing. The course will be held weekly on Wednesday nights from 6:30pm - 8:15pm at West Vancouver Secondary School. Designed as a course to challenge and extend the learning of the district’s finest choral singers, students must meet the pre-requisites for the course before applying. Pre-requisites are as follows:

  • Experience singing in a choir (either school or community)
  • Knowledge of basic music theory (e.g. note names and basic note values)
  • Must be enrolled in their school choir for the year in which they are registered for the District Honour Choir (exceptions can be made in specific circumstances at the teacher’s discretion)
  • An understanding that there will be times throughout the year that students will be required to attend mandatory concerts and extra rehearsals outside of regular class time

In addition to meeting the pre-requisites for the course, all students will be required to audition in mid-April. Interested students must contact the choir director, Mrs. Suzanne Fulton at sfulton@sd45.bc.ca, to be considered for an audition by Wednesday, March 13, 2013. The email should include the student’s full name, as well as his or her grade and school (in September 2013). Specific audition times and requirements will then be sent out by email. Students will be notified of acceptance by the beginning of May.

* Course Fee: There is a $200 fee for this course, due the first day of class, to cover the following items:

  • Bussing to concerts and workshops in the community
  • Music festival entry fees (e.g. Kiwanis Festival)
  • Guest clinicians invited to workshop the choir

In addition to the course fee, students in this group will attend the Whistler “Con Brio” Music Festival, usually held in April. There will be an additional cost for this 4 day/3 night competition, workshop experience, and hotel stay (approximately $400 dollars per participant).
