Those interested in auditioning for a college music scholarship should see their director


The Scioto County Honors Music Festival is a long-standing tradition which has taken place for the past 80 years. Local Jr. High and High School music students audition to become part of the Honors Band or Choir and are given the opportunity to learn from their peers, other music directors and visiting Guest Conductors.  


Senior students who have participated in the Honors Music Festival for at least two years may also audition for a $1,000 Music Scholarship (there is one offered for band and one offered for choir each year). The winners of the Scholarship Awards are announced during the Music Festival final performance.

The 2024 Scioto County Honors Music Festival will take place on February 27 at 7:00 PM at the Vern Riffe Center for the Arts.
