Georgia High School All-State Chorus Application
Being selected to the Georgia Music Educators Association All-State Chorus is one of the highest honors for a high school singer. The regional audition tests a student’s ability to sing scales, sing an aria with a beautiful tone, appropriate placement and breath support, and sight-read music at a high rate of difficulty. All of the information, repertoire and practice files needed for the audition is located at https://www.gmea.org/asc-audition-information.
Mrs. Allyn, along with advanced students, will be available by appointment for coaching. After the first audition, if the student is accepted into an All-State Chorus, the final audition is a test of the student’s knowledge of the music to be performed. The student must sing her/his part of the assigned All-State repertoire in front of judges and have a 70% or higher accuracy level.
Students (with parent permission) deciding to audition for GMEA All-State Chorus must be committed to following through the auditions and commit to being a part of the event. No student will be excused from an All-State Chorus rehearsal to participate in another school activity or sporting event.
