Dear Candidates for the District Honour Choir,

We would really like to make sure that the students selected for this special choir are not only the strongest singers in the district, but are also the students who will be fully committed to a group of this high caliber.  It is necessary that all students in the District Honour Choir demonstrate a love of rehearsing and performing music to the best of their ability and collaborate well with their peers. 

In order to help the audition committee get to know you better, in addition to your audition, we would like to know why you think you would be a good candidate for this special, auditioned choir.  Please write/type a few paragraphs (maximum length is one page) outlining why you are a good candidate for the District Honour Choir.  In your written response, please answer the following questions:

  1. Why you want to join the District Honour Choir?
  2. Why do you love singing in choir?
  3. What makes you a good candidate for the group/what could you contribute to the group?
  4. What would your personal goals be as a member of the District Honour Choir?
