Our JR High Choir rehearsal and performance will be held Monday, April 16, 2018 at the First Presbyterian Church (16 Hitt Street, Columbia, MO).

Registration: In January, I will be emailing a registration form. Registration fee is $4 per student. There will be a limit on how many students we can have in each choir. Late registrations will not be accepted this year due to space and voicing limitations. Please make your checks out to NE District #2. You can mail your check or bring it with you on the day of the festival. Please no purchase orders! An invoice will be generated after you complete your registration form. Payment may be mailed to:
