Junior High/9th Grade All-State Honor Choir

2020-2021 All State Honor Choir Updates–we are going virtual!

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.

Due to the ever changing Covid situation in California, CCDA is not able to offer an in-person All State this year. However, we will be offering our students a virtual All State experience, which we are very excited about! For more information, please check out this presentation. This is new territory for us all, so we will be continually updating our membership as the event takes shape. Please email me if you have any questions!
