Directors- Please make sure that your District Chairman has an accurate and reliable e-mail for you and that no FVA e-mails are finding their way into your spam folder. All-State updates and information will be communicated via e-mail, this website, and on the FVA Facebook page.

FMEA High School Student Jazz Vocal Soloist Mentoring/Performance Clinic

Below you will find information concerning the Jazz Vocal mentoring clinic and the HS jazz vocalist performance audition. This event has occurred during our FMEA conference for several years and has been a smashing success. Please feel free to contact Lisa Kelly directly if you have any questions.

New vocalise tracks

Choral Tracks has produced new vocalise tracks to be used in the All-State vocal auditions, starting this fall. Both vocalises must be performed on the syllable “zaw” (IPA: [za]). The consonant should not be reiterated on each pitch. The tempo is 100 beats per minute. Remember- the vocalise is your chance to show beautifully you can sing on a neutral syllable.

2016 All-State part tracks available

Part tracks for the 2016 All-State Choirs are ready and available for purchase through Choral Tracks. Click here to get started!
