Our Directors Choice Chorus sings the Act I Finale and joins the entire company for the show finale. Members of the Directors Choice Chorus are chosen by their high school drama teachers to represent their programs. Each participating program is asked to nominate one male and one female.
Drama teachers from schools registered with our program select two representatives from their schools. Additionally, we will announce a number of open positions to be filled by directors from other schools. The number of open positions will change from year to year, depending on the number of participating schools and the number of positions the program can accommodate.
Participating schools will be asked to nominate their students on April 17, 2017, immediately following the announcement of all nominees for the Popejoy Awards on April 16. Other schools will be sent a nominating form on March 26, 2018.
Directors Choice Chorus members will also work with the artistic team of the Popejoy Awards, and observe some of the final rehearsals, giving them a great educational opportunity as well as a chance to sing on the Popejoy Hall stage.
Dates and times for Directors Choice Chorus rehearsals will be announced at a later date. Students selected for the Directors Choice Chorus must complete a student registration form and be able to attend all rehearsals to participate.
