Choral Assessment is a performance adjudication festival for choral ensembles. This is one of our most important performances of the entire year! Selected ensembles will participate in this event. Ensembles (usually all) will perform two to three songs for a panel of judges and will be scored on various music and performance elements. A sight-reading component is also required and scored for this event. Participating choirs receive feedback and comments from the judges as well as a brief on-stage clinic with one of the judges. This event is the SOL Tests for music performance ensembles and is treated with as much importance as the other SOL tests. The event is held in March. Performance times are not assigned until later in the year and will be announced as soon as they are known.
