The article presents suggestions for conducting honor choirs. The musical goals for the honor choir experience are the responsibility of the conductor. The guest conductor also has an opportunity to invite teachers to gauge the effectiveness of his or her rehearsal, conducting, and performance techniques. Before accepting the first invitation to conduct an honor choir, one is advised to to attend a similar event. One of the primary tasks for guest conductors is submitting proposed repertoire for the organizing committee's approval. Guest conductors are often provided with programs from previous years as a guide.
