Honor Choirs

2019 All State videos can be downloaded here.  Please remember these videos are for educational purposes only and may not be posted online anywhere.

The CCDA/SCVA Honor Choirs are an amazing opportunity for school students from around the state of California to sing in select choirs under the direction of nationally and internationally known conductors. We have three Regional High School Honor Choir events, and an All-State High School and All-State Jr. High/9th Grade Honor Choir event.

Why participate in honor choir? Check out this video link for some student testimonials!

If you are new to the honor choir process please visit our High School All-State page, or Junior High/9th Grade All-State page to learn more about the honor choir process and experience. We look forward to working with many new students,  teachers and directors this year.

PLEASE NOTE: The structure of All State will be changing in 2020. We will be changing to the CODA/CBDA model, in which the cost for participation will include hotel (all students must stay at the honor choir, even local students), hotel, meals, music, t shirt, recordings, and transportation from the hotel to rehearsals and performances (transportation to and from Fresno is NOT included). The participation fee for All State Honor Choir in 2020 will be $360.
