Honors Opportunity for Choir

Students also have various opportunities each year to audition for honors bands and choirs outside of the school system.

Because WSMA is an integral part of the band and choir curriculum at PHS, the Music Boosters offer limited scholarships for students who audition for and make the WSMA State Honors Music Project (band or choir) each year.
