Middle School Honor Choir

The TPSMEA Middle School Honor Choir is an SATB “auditioned” choir. The choir is made up of 7th and 8th grade students. Each teacher selects students to submit a recorded audition for judging. You must register your students by the deadline listed above at www.tpsmea.opusevent.com. You must be a current TPSMEA member to submit  an audition. Links for membership to TPSMEA are available on the www.tpsmea.org website. Auditions are judged by participating teachers and, in some cases, guest judges. *Please contact us with any specific requests for exemptions to the 7th and 8th grade eligibility rule…i.e., younger students with changed voices.

Children’s Honor Choir

The TPSMEA Children’s Honor Choir is comprised of outstanding 5th and 6th graders from each school and selected for participation by their teacher. (Students should be no younger than 10 and no older than 12 on the date of the event) Please contact us with any specific questions regarding eligibility of students. There is an “online” and an “in hand” deadline that participating teachers observe. Make sure to check the dates on the TPSMEA vocal calendar. You must register your students by the deadline listed on the calendar and at www.solochair.com

You must also be a current TPSMEA member to register students.
