Program Description

The Don Wright Faculty of Music is pleased to announce the Western University High School Honour Choir for high school students in London and the surrounding areas. This two-day choral experience will provide students with the opportunity to engage in high-level choral singing under the guidance of Western faculty. They will also have the chance to meet other enthusiastic local singers and make musical memories that will last a lifetime!

Acceptance into the ensemble is through teacher recommendation, not audition. Local teachers will be invited to nominate a balanced SATB quartet of singers.

Questions may be directed to Patrick Murray at pmurra29@uwo.ca
