The 2018 fee for this show choir camp experience will be $450 for students. This fee includes meals Friday through Monday morning, All-State music, online rehearsal recordings, and lodging on campus.
A limited number of partial scholarships are available. Please make sure that any student whose teacher submits a Scholarship Form on their behalf understands that they are responsible for the balance of the cost, and that the full fee is to be sent pending approval of scholarship. If the scholarship is approved, a reimbursement will be provided from the IMEA office.
Honor Choir Selection
Final selection will be made by the committee soon after the April deadline, approximately the second week of April. Students and teachers will be notified of the decision no later than the last week of April. Rehearsal recordings for All State Show Choir will be available on the website for each participating singer along with the repertoire. Please read carefully, follow the instructions, and meet the deadlines as stated in the audition process. Failure to do so will disqualify the audition.
It is our pleasure to offer your students this quality opportunity to learn and grow musically. Thank you for your continued interest in and support of IMEA and its programs.
If you have any questions regarding information or procedures, please contact the All State Show Choir Chair, Dr. Alan Alder.
All directors who submit auditions must be members of NAfME/IMEA for an audition to be considered. Students of non-member teachers who submit auditions for consideration will be rejected. Remember: A student may be enrolled by a private studio or community choir director only if the student’s school does not participate in a show choir program. The name of the school where the student is enrolled must be identified during the registration process.
Teachers are asked to confirm that the auditioning student(s) will be available on the dates of the camp before submitting the application and audition. Teachers are also asked to submit students who understand that rooming changes will not be made after their registration in complete. Please note: All registrations will be completed by the teacher in order to be accepted to alleviate confusion regarding rooming, payment, and submission of Medical and Fee Tally Forms.
Teachers will need to teach and monitor the progress of singers from their school. Teachers, please make sure your selected students do this: once selected, teachers will be responsible to complete the registration process online. The link to registration will be provided in the information letter the teacher will receive.
Note that absolutely no rooming assignments can be changed after applications have been received.
