ALL STATE CALENDAR: Monday, September 17, 2018 - Audition during class with Mrs. Hamilton Wednesday, September 19, 2018 - $25 fee due to HHS (GMEA All-State audition fee) Saturday, November 10, 2018 - All-State region audition @ Woodland High School Thursday, January 19, 2019 - All-State second audition @ Rome Middle School Thursday - Saturday, February 14-16, 2019 - ALL-STATE CHOIR event @ The Classic Center in Athens, GA
Georgia All-State Chorus is open to students grades 9-12. In order for a student to audition for Georgia All-State Chorus, the student must be enrolled in a chorus class at Heritage High School for both fall and spring semesters of the school year. GMEA (Georgia Music Educators Association) charges a $25 registration fee for the Region audition. Should you make it past this audition, there is another $25 acceptance fee.
A parent or guardian must drive and be responsible for their student at both of the auditions and also at the event. Parents must provide transportation, lodging, and food at the event in Athens should you make it. (I will reserve the hotel rooms when I receive the list of who makes All-State Choir and you may pay HHS the hotel fee. Last year, we stayed at Best Western, Athens and each room was $268 TOTAL for the event. My hope is that it will be the same this year.) I will be present at both of the auditions and the event, as well, but all choir directors will be assigned duties. Your parent will be your chaperone. The first audition with me will be on Monday, September 17, 2017 during class or during lunch. Students will sing Major, minor, and chromatic scales, a section of a piece of music from the corresponding links below (sing it on the syllable "la"), and a sight reading example.
