Honor Choirs

IMEA All-State Children’s and Middle School Honor Choirs as part of the IMEA State Conference

January 23-24, 2014 – Fort Wayne

Since 1990, IMEA has sponsored an elementary and a middle school honor choir. Students who are participating in Circle the State with Song area festivals have the opportunity to audition for these All-State Honor Choirs. Both choirs are select groups of approximately 140 singers each. Our goal is to choose singers from each of the 12 area CSWS festivals to fill balanced parts. Both groups will perform at the IMEA STATE CONFERENCE on JANUARY 24, 2014 at the Embassy Theatre, Fort Wayne, IN.

The Honor choir performance will begin at 4:00 pm. The Elementary Honor Choir will perform first, followed by the Middle School Honor Choir performance.

PLEASE NOTE: Seating for the performance will not open until 3:45 pm for the 4:00 pm concert. There are several performances throughout the day on the Embassy stage. In order for the students to have rehearsal time on stage, the doors will not open for seating until 3:45 pm. There is plenty of great seating so everyone will be able to be seated without a problem before the program begins.

The 2014 fee for this choral experience will be $160 for the Elementary Honor Choir and for the Middle School Honor Choir. This fee includes four meals, All-State music, rehearsal recordings on the IMEA web-site, and an overnight stay at the Hilton Hotel or the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel, downtown Fort Wayne.

This special event is almost here!

Thank you to all of those who have volunteered as either a daytime helper or an overnight chaperone. Whether you are helping with an additional group of students or simply chaperoning your own child, your help is greatly appreciated!

Teachers will need to teach and monitor the progress of honor choir singers from their school.

Please note: No rooming changes will be made once the online registration is complete.

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 your Circle the State with Song Area Coordinator or the 2013-14 IMEA Circle the State with Song State Chair Judy Becker (jbecker@warsaw.k12.in.us).
