2024 Audition Music

We invite all high school students and directors to participate in this year's exciting High School Honor Choir Festival, held on the beautiful campus of Southern Utah University.

Students will be selected by audition to rehearse and perform outstanding choral literature under the direction of Dr. Andrew Briggs, Director of Choral Activities at Southern Utah University.

Students selected for the SUU High School Honor Choir participate in two days of rehearsals and activities culminating in a concert at the end of the second day at the beautiful Heritage Center Theater in Cedar City, Utah.

Audition materials include a complete score for use during a full choir rehearsal to facilitate a collective effort in your preparation. Separate parts are available for each voice.

Directors are encouraged to print the audition materials from our website. Submission options include sending a link to a private YouTube channel (preferred) or sending recorded performances to in MP3 format. You may also send a CD recording of auditions to Cecilia Sands, Music Department, Southern Utah University, 351 West University Boulevard, Cedar City, Utah, 84720.

The registration fee is $30.00 per applicant upon acceptance.

Accommodations are not provided, however, there are many hotel options in close proximity to the rehearsal/performance hall. The final concert is scheduled for 4pm on January 6th. (Concert dress is of your choosing - please wear whatever you traditionally perform in for similar performing experiences.)

Come be a part of a tradition of singing great music and having lots of fun at SUU! For further questions contact Dr. Briggs at
