The National Teacher Hall of Fame Honor Choir has been and continues to be the ultimate honor choir experience for my middle school students. We rarely have the opportunity to create wonderful choral music with students from other schools and this event fulfills this need. The NTHF honor choir is an exciting two day event that leaves my students feeling invigorated for the new school year and turns them into vocal leaders and role models in their choirs. Not only is it a rewarding experience for students, teachers and parents, but at $35 per participant, the price is truly a bargain!!

The honor choir was just the right amount of hard work and fun. When the kids come away enthused and motivated for the upcoming school year, what teacher wouldn't want this experience for them.

For the past 13 years, I have had students participate in the National Teachers Hall of Fame Chorus. I can't even begin to tell you how valuable this NTHF experience is. I send my best incoming 8th grade students to ESU each year and have had the amazing opportunity to watch my students develop their confidence, singing technique and leadership skills in just a short amount of time at NTHF. This experience truly sets the expectations for a GREAT school year. When we send our best students for this experience in June, it pays off for the rest of the year! The is the BEST experience my middle school students remember...even over KMEA and KCDA choir experiences.
