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 studentâ€™s ability to sing scales, sing an art song 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:
Dr. Mann and Mr. Stoner will be available during WEB blocks A, C, and D for practice sessions. After the first audition, if you are accepted into an All-State Chorus, the final audition is a test of the studentâ€™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) who decide to audition for GMEA All-State Chorus must be committed to following through the auditions and commit to being a part of the event if chosen. No student will be excused from an All-State Chorus rehearsal to participate in another school activity or sporting event.
