How do I audition? 

The Florida ACDA Honor Choir is by RECORDED audition.  You will need to learn the given excerpts and we will record you singing them.  Recordings will take place the first/second week of September after school in a practice room. You will need to sign up for a recording time.  

 

What do I need to do now? 

  1. Start learning the music on the website as soon as it is published. 
  1. Make sure you can sing it without your part playing back in your ear. 

 

Remember: This choir is blindly chosen by recorded audition.  The stronger the recording (including great vocal tone, musicianship, security and independence) the higher your chances of making the ACDA honor choir.  

 

How much does ACDA Cost? 

The trip itself costs about $200, but Leon Friends of Music HEAVILY subsidizes this trip.  IF A STUDENT MAKES THE FLORIDA ACDA CHOIR AND CAN’T PAY—there ARE scholarships available for this! 

 

When are the help sessions? 

There are practice tracks for these excerpts. It is expected that students will show up to the recording with Mrs. Peck already prepared.
