For a student to participate in the 2019 A Cappella Honor Choir, we will receive teacher nominations, as usual. In addition to those singers, a select honor choir comprised of 24 of the top a cappella singers in our area will also be selected. If you are interested in being chosen for this select group, they will need to provide an audition video with your nomination. Students not hoping to be in the small select group will not need to submit an audition, but will only require a teacher nomination.

We are very excited to help grow the a cappella scene here in Nebraska, and we want you to be a part of this unique artistic experience!!!
