We are so excited that we have 37 students advancing to Round 2 of the All-State Audition process! This year there will only be three rounds of All-State Choir Auditions so Round 2 will determine who will advance to Area Auditions (which are the Round 3 and final auditions). More information regarding Round Three will be send out shortly after Round 2 Audition results are posted. The top 5 chairs and 2 alternates of each voice part will advance to Area Auditions (Final Round of All-State Auditions!!). Chairs 1 through 16 will secure a position in the All-Region Choir, and chairs 17 through 24 will secure a position in the All-District Choir!
Those advancing to Round 2 will have between November 28th, 2020 and December 2nd, 2020 (at 11:59 p.m.) to submit their audition recordings. They will each be sent an individual link that they will use to sign in to record their All-State auditions once the cuts are revealed. Please ensure that your student takes the time to check the link and re-familiarize themselves with the layout of the website before the cuts come out.
It is again HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that the students record at GPFAA with our TMEA approved equipment! We want to make sure their best recording is submitted. As of now we have the recording dates set for November 30th, December 1st, and December 2nd, 2020. Please fill out this survey to choose a date and time for recording at GPFAA: Round Two Recording at GPFAA.
We will again be following strict social distancing guidelines and taking precautions to ensure the safety of all of the students during the recording process. If for any reason your Vocal Music student is unable to come to the school to make their recording please let Mr. Duarte (firstname.lastname@example.org ) know no later than Monday, November 16th, 2020.
Please help us to ensure that your student AGAIN watches the official TMEA All-State video on how to submit a recording. If you have not yet done so, we also continue to encourage parents to watch it so that all are familiar with the recording process.
