Due to the implications of the COVID-19 Virus, the Texas Choral Directors Association (TCDA) has released the following updates:
Due to current school closures and varied resources across our state, meeting any imminent deadline for auditions is impossible for many of our teachers, creating a great deal of inequity in this competitive process; therefore, we are suspending all honor choir auditions effective immediately. All paid audition fees will be refunded in full.
NEW AND IN PLACE OF THE MS/JH All-STATE CHOIR
In an effort to continue to provide a singing experience for our students, we will be converting the MS/JH All-State Choir into a non-auditioned, Festival Choir, with a new and different registration process.
- Registrations will be time-stamped (first come/first serve) until we reach capacity. When a section reaches capacity, you may request to be added to the waitlist without submitting payment.
- Registration will open on May 11 and close on June 1
- Singers will register and pay the $90 festival choir fee
- The MS/JH choir will be composed of 232 singers in four parts
We hope this opportunity to perform with peers and be taught and mentored by a nationally acclaimed clinician will provide a wonderful choral experience for these young singers.
We understand that every family’s circumstances during this time are different. If you have any questions please let me know.
