Honors Band Concert
Some very talented students participated in the annual Honors Chorus Concert scheduled on April 30 at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts. The concert featured the “best of the best” elementary, middle, and high school choral students from Collier County Public Schools. Each year, students audition for the opportunity to perform in the Honors Chorus Concert. Once selected, the students go through rigorous rehearsals in preparation for the performance. The day of the concert, the students get a special treat as guest clinicians from around Florida work with them in final preparation for their performance.
