Repertoire includes Class 'A' contest literature. There will be a performance at the conclusion of each semester:

Performances are held in the Stewart Room of the Randall Campus Center (building 10), and are folded into Malone's honors recitals, which occur near the end of each semester. Current Malone students are invited by faculty to publicly showcase their work from private lessons, small ensembles, opera theater scenes, or compositions. It is a great opportunity for Honors Choir participants to observe and enjoy musical performances at the collegiate level.

There is no cost for participation, but registration is requireD.

In case of inclement weather, we adhere to the decision made by the canton city school district (CCSD). If CCSD cancels classes due to winter weather, Honors Choir rehearsal will also be canceled.

“Malone University High School Honors Choir has been an excellent opportunity for my students to expand their musical skills with students from around our community. My students have enjoyed working with the talented and professional Malone staff and students, as well as the fun aspect of singing in a choir where everyone loves vocal music and wants to do their very best!”
