HIGHLANDS YOUTH ENSEMBLE
About the Highlands Youth Ensemble
The Highlands Youth Ensemble, under the direction of Jane DeLoach Morison, is a highly auditioned ensemble for singers in grades 9-12 (plus changed male voices in the 8th grade) throughout the Mountain Empire region. The choir performs primarily a cappella repertoire in four-part (soprano, alto, tenor, and bass) harmony and is committed to performing the greatest choral music from throughout history and around the globe.
Many HYE singers received their early training in earlier MECCA choirs. Members are regularly awarded places in All-County, All-District, All-East, All-State, Governor’s Schools, Regional, and National honor choirs. Some have even been national soloists.
HYE singers regularly receive both music and academic scholarships to universities across the nation. Many former HYE singers are now teaching and performing professionally.
