Each choir will sing four songs: two of the songs are required. Each group will be adjudicated by three judges on areas of choral tone, intonation and interpretation. Following the competition, Viking Choir will reunite and sing four favorite selections from the year. New incoming Viking Choir members will be invited on stage to receive an honorary choir stole from a graduating senior. The concert ends with everyone singing "The Blessings of Aaron."
