Justin Bills - Choir Director

After a full day of rehearsals, over 500 high school students from across the state gathered in separate Women's and Men's Honor Choirs, for an afternoon concert in Abravanel Hall in downtown SLC, on Saturday, January 22nd. Sponsored by the Utah Music Educators Association, the Women's Honor Choir was conducted this year by retired choir teacher, Tana Esplin (Juab High School) and the Men's Honor Choir was conducted by Justin Bills, the Director of Choirs at Salem Hills High School and accompanied by John Sargeant, Principal Accompanist at Salem Hills.

This year's performance marks the restart of the decades-long Honor Choir tradition in Utah, which was paused in 2021 due to Covid-related concerns.

Leslie Walker, choir director from Springville High School, said of the event, "In comparison with other honor choir groups, this group was especially on fire- full of enthusiasm. I think it was partly because they appreciated being there more than other years because of the pandemic. They all had a great experience with the conductors, and with singing together."

80 high school students from Nebo School District participated in the choirs this year!
