Visit our new GCISD Elementary Honor Choir Website for more information 

Who are we?

The GCISD Elementary Honor Choir is an auditioned ensemble of 4th and 5th grade students from all 11 elementary schools in GCISD. We rehearse on Tuesdays during the Spring semester in the Cross Timbers Middle School Choir Room from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Students have the opportunity to sing challenging repertoire, make new friends from across the district, learn from GCISD choir faculty, and perform at a concert and choir festival. Students must participate in their campus choir  to be eligible to audition for the honor choir.  If your campus does not have choir available to you this year, you are still eligible to audition.

How do I audition?

Auditions for the 2022-2023 choir are at each elementary campus, on either November 14th or 15th.   Your campus music teacher will send out a Google Form beginning the week of October 10th.  Please fill out the Google Form by Friday, October 28, 2022.   if your child is interested. Auditions forms must be turned in by Friday, October 29th.  You can find the audition material HERE.

What will the choir wear?

Black pants, solid black sneakers (no white soles), black socks, and a GCISD Elementary Honor Choir t-shirt.

What does being in the choir cost?

There is a $35 fee to cover a t-shirt, binder, and sheet music expenses. 
We plan to attend a festival in the spring that will require an additional fee. 
No student will be excluded from the GCISD Honor Choir or any related event for financial reasons.
