Pay the $45

Honor Choir registration fee

Oberlin Choristers Honor Choir

Each year nearly 200 singers in grades 4-6 are recommended by their teacher to participate in this extraordinary event. Singers from school districts around Northeast Ohio join together in a day of singing, fun, and inspiration.

2022 brings a smaller, safer group of singers together as we consider new ways to collaborate with local teachers to provide quality, extracurricular music education.
