ACDA Men’s Honor Choir/ACDA Southern Division Honor Choir  (Optional)

The American Choral Directors Association holds its annual conference every November at Stetson University.  As a part of this conference, the State ACDA Middle School Men’s Honor Choir rehearses with a nationally renowned director and performs for the state membership and parents.  This choir is made up of the finest singers from all over the state of Florida, and should include many Lake Nona Chorus students. On alternating years, (2018) the Southern Division ACDA Conference sponsors a Honor Choir for male and female vocalists.  This year it will take place in Kansas City, Missouri! Selection for these choirs is by recorded audition and is highly competitive among singers from all over the region.

Rehearsals will take place two days a week starting in October through December.
