Middle School Honors Chorus
Every year, the Middle School Honors Chorus is held in November, performing at the North Carolina Music Educator’s In-Service Conference. This chorus provides an opportunity for the very best singers from across the state (grade 6,7, and 8) to come together and work with a nationally acclaimed choral conductor.

Music Performance Adjudication (MPA)
ALL Middle School Choral directors are encouraged to bring one or more groups to your district MPA. It is a fabulous experience for your students and for you! We have well-qualified adjudicators who understand the particular “world” of our middle-school students, and who give wonderful comments, compliments, suggestions, and insight about each individual group. You can perform for comments and a rating, or for comments only if you are not sure you’re ready to be “rated”!
Sight-reading at Large MPA is a separate opportunity for comments and a rating or comments only, but it is NOT required–although I STRONGLY encourage you to take advantage of it! In addition, you and your students can hear other middle school groups from around your district – what a great chance for you to have your students listen critically and assess what they hear from other groups – it is an invaluable learning tool!
