Honors Choirs of Southeast Minnesota is a nonprofit organization of four youth choirs for grades 3-12, and a musical learning class for children in grades 1 & 2. Founded in 1992, its mission is to promote the highest standard of excellence in the preparation and performance of choral music, seeking to provide artistic challenge and growth opportunities for youth throughout the region and enjoyment for the community at large. Membership is by audition and is open to all students who live in southeast Minnesota.
This season, we have 320+ singers who represent over 25 different communities and 50 different schools in southeast Minnesota! It's our 25th season of bringing talented young people and wonderful choral music together! Our ensembles rehearse weekly throughout the academic year in Rochester preparing challenging repertoire, learning music history and theory, and practicing ear training techniques.
Honors Choirs offices, rehearsal locations and performance venues are all accessible. Large print programs, reserved wheel chair seating, and listening devices are available for all performances. All requests for special accomodations will receive top priority. Please contact the Honors Choirs office at 507-252-0505 for pre-arrangements.
Honors Choirs activities are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
