CMASC Website: http://www.msallstatechoir.org
Eligibility and Fees:
7th and 8th Grade choral music students in the State of Colorado are eligible to audition for the CMASC. CMASC also requires that the submitting director recommend all of their students auditioning, asserting that the auditioning student has the discipline and maturity to participate in a high level musical event. There is a $20.00 audition fee per student to audition for All State Choir (PAID BY THE SUNSET CHOIR DEPARTMENT). If accepted, students must agree to attend the entire two day event on February 4-5, 2016, and pay a $30.00 acceptance fee in order to participate. Participation fees, transportation lodging, and purchase of concert repertoire is all the responsibility of the auditioning school and/or the individual student.
Recommended students must complete an audition recording in which they will sing an accompanied prepared song, sing an ascending and descending major scale, sing melodic echo examples (aural recall), and sing two short melodic examples at sight. Students may not see the melodic echo, sight-singing, or harmonic reading prior to their audition recording. Completed recordings will then be labeled and submitted to this website in mp3 format via our Submission Page.
Available Voice Parts:
Female students may be placed in the Treble Choir or the Women's Choir. The available voice parts to female singers are Soprano I, Soprano II, and Alto.
Male students may audition for the Treble Choir if they are unchanged Soprano I, Soprano II, or Alto, or the Men's Choir if they are Tenor I, Tenor II, or Baritone-Bass that are in all stages of the voice change.
NOTE: In the event that an unchanged boy is accepted into the Treble Choir and then begins to lower between his acceptance and the actual event, he may still participate in All State he will just be moved to the part best suited for him in the Men's Choir.

Students need to download the following apps before Monday, September 14th, and put them into a folder labeled "Choir" on their iPad (apps that are used for other classes may be stored in a location of your choosing).
I had this sent to me a today from Lee Smoot, the director of St. Vrain Singers, a community choir for kids and youth in grades 3-9. I'm passing it on to you, in case you are interested. It's a great opportunity to sing in a choir full of people who love to sing and want to be great. If you need help preparing anything, I'm more than happy to help!
