All-State Choir Prep Day

Join us for the 8th Annual Friends University All-State Choir Prep Day on Sept. 19 in the Riney Fine Arts Center’s Sebits Auditorium. Friends University faculty will help your students prepare for KMEA High School Honor Choir Auditions. Though we are all facing the unknown this year, we are still forging ahead! We will observe physical distancing, have 30-minute rehearsals, and require all to wear face coverings the entire time. There will be a virtual option as well, for those students who would be more comfortable participating off campus.

Directors, please fill out the form below. If you have any questions, please contact the Fine Arts Office at 316-295-5537.

There is no registration fee for this event. Singers need to bring their own copies of the three pieces, along with pencils. Singers may not bring food or beverages into rehearsal/performance spaces.

Please see the Friends University map here for available parking and directions to campus. All parking is free.

Lunch is not provided. Many restaurant options are available on West Street and in the Delano District. Take Maple west for West Street restaurants or east for the Delano District restaurants. Please enjoy the many options in price and fare that the area has to offer.
