This event will be held in Volga, SD, this year. Students will attend for a full day, taking off from the school at 8:00am and returning after the concert (probably back by around 9:00pm). The concert is held at Sioux Valley High School at 7:00pm, and the cost for admission is generally around $5 per adult and $3 per student to attend the concert. Student meals are provided through the music program.
Freeman All-State Extravaganza – Thursday, October 20, 2016

Region II Contest – Monday, March 13, 2017
This event is held at Augustana University in Sioux Falls, SD. Students will be participating in a single event as a choir, scheduled some time during the day. Depending on when the event is scheduled, students may need to bring money for lunch. The event is open to the public, and many different schools will have participants in various events all day. We plan to leave by 8:00am and return before the end of the school day.
The Honor Choir will perform three to four selections over the course of the school year at our two public concerts, including our Christmas concert (December 8) and our spring concert (April 27).
Again, congratulations to these accomplished students for their extra work and commitment to the practice of choral performance!
