All-State 2014 Preliminary Composite Rankings
by carlton on October 11, 2013
The composite rankings for the 2013-2014 All-State testing cycle are posted below for perusal. These scores are a preliminary ranking of all students in the state by voice part. It is important to note the following:
- These rankings have absolutely no bearing on final seat assignments. All seats will be determined by the selection process detailed in the FVA Handbook after all auditions and scoring have been completed. They are a reference only.
- The maximum composite score at this stage is 65.000. The remaining 35 points are awarded from the Vocal Quality exam. The final maximum composite score will be 100.000.
- Please contact the Chair of your FVA district if you believe there is an error in score reporting. They will verify the score from the hard copies of the initial testing materials and report any corrections to the FVA President: firstname.lastname@example.org

7-8 Mixed Choir: Slower recording of “Lebenslust” available for free
by Jussi on October 6, 2013
Middle School Directors,
We felt the All State 7-8 Mixed Choir recordings of “Lebenslust” from Choral Tracks were too fast for our students. In response, they have graciously re-recorded it at a slower tempo and made them available for free. A pronunciation track has also been provided! Questions or concerns regarding this can be directed to email@example.com.
