As an LMHS student, you are part of PMEA District 11!! There are twelve different districts in PA and District 11 is made up of Bucks and Montgomery Counties. Each year, 10th - 12th grade students have the opportunity to audition for the District Choir festival. If you make the choir, you will receive a packet of music to practice that you will perform at the District 11 Chorus Festival. At this festival, you will be re-auditioned and the top ten singers will be invited to the Region VI choir festival. The process continues at the Region Choir festival, you are reauditioned and the top 5 students of each voice part will be invited to the PMEA All-State Festival!

PMEA Audition Material
How Do I Get To Go To Auditions??
You will audition for Miss Dehner in October in order to become one of the singers that goes to auditions. We can send four students for each voice part SATB (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass) You will be required to know the entirety of both pieces "How Lovely Are The Messengers" and "O Magnum Mysterium" as well as sight read an 8 measure sight reading. In order to practice, USE THE RECORDINGS and use Sight Reading Factory!!!
****You can only audition if you can make the festival that takes place Jan. 16-Jan. 18, 2020****
The best way to make the choir is to be the most prepared singer in the room. DON'T SELL YOURSELF SHORT!!! You can do anything you put your mind to!
