All-State Elementary Chorus
Students of FEMEA members are eligible to audition for this elite performing ensemble. Only the top students from around the state are selected! Audition entry requires login to your fmea.org account.
If you have auditioned singers for All-State before, you’ll likely notice several changes. These changes resulted from insightful feedback gathered from FEMEA members and the FEMEA Executive Board.
Streamlined audition process: With the help of an audition-guided track, teachers no longer have to participate in the administration of the auditions themselves. Now, teachers simply have to facilitate a quality recording and prepare their students for what to expect in the audition itself.
Simplified rubric: Taking the feedback from many veteran judges, the audition rubric has been pared down to hone in on the skills and capabilities required as a member of the All-State Chorus
Switch from a round to a partner song: Rather than use a round, we have added a partner song to assess a child’s independence. With this change, we welcome more diverse repertoire into the audition process, allowing us to incorporate musical traditions beyond the Western canon.
Each of these changes have been a result of months of critical discussion. If you have any questions or need support, please feel free to contact us at any time. Thank you, and good luck
