Provincial Honour Groups 2013 Update


I would like to thank everyone who supported the 2012 Saskatchewan Honour Groups by encouraging students to audition. We are confident that the fun and learning of those fantastic ensembles will continue with the 2013 Saskatchewan Honour Groups. With your participation 2013 will be a very memorable and rewarding experience for all involved. We are pleased to announce the 2013 Honour Band will be under the direction of Clinton Marshall and the 2013 Honour Choir will be under the direction of Lee Willingham.

Choir, Band and Orchestra have different recommendation/audition requirements for participants.

SmartMusic is available (email g.steen.smea@sasktel.net) to band/choir/private teachers to allow a auditionee(s) to practice/develop and record his/her Honour Group audition on MP3 and email it. The choir and band repertoire will be supported for SmartMusic and other innovative student support for 2013, meaning students can be comfortably prepared. 

To provide this technology to students we are asking band directors to survey all students interested in auditioning. 
Band Students need to submit an audition by May 15. Choir recommendations by May 15th also please.

Please contact HG Chair: Lenora Bells <lenora.bells@gmail.com> with any questions or concerns you may have. 

We look forward to hearing the Honour Groups and watching Clinton Marshall and Lee Willingham work with the ensembles in the fall of 2013. 

Have a great summer!
