All-State 2024

All-State 2024

FVA’s All-State Choruses are a part of the annual Florida Music Education Association Professional Development Conference.

The All-State Choruses are highly select groups of choral students from Florida’s middle/junior high and senior high schools who are brought together for the purposes of rehearsing and performing selected music with guest conductors.

The next FMEA Professional Development Conference and All-State dates are January 10–13, 2024, in Tampa. For more information, including future conference dates, see fmea.org/conference.

Documentation
Registration Process

Directors should be aware that there are two different registration processes:

  1. Audition registration: Directors who wish to enter students in the All-State chorus auditions must first register students online at flmusiced.org/MPAOnline.
    • Your FMEA & FVA membership must be current in order to register students for All-State auditions. If necessary, you can visit fmea.org to renew your membership.
    • When you begin the All-State audition registration process at MPAOnline, you’ll need to verify your current membership, by linking your MPAOnline account to your FMEA member account. The MPAOnline website will guide you through this process.
  2. Conference registration: Directors with students that earn a place (“seat” or “ticket”) in an All-State chorus must then register both themselves and their students for the FMEA Professional Development Conference in Tampa, where the All-State Choruses rehearse and perform. You can do this online at fmea.org using your FMEA member credentials.
Part Tracks

Part tracks for the Florida All-State Choruses are created and distributed by Choral Tracks.

Vocal Quality Audition - Announced Excerpts & Vocalises

Please refer to the All-State Omnibus for the Vocal Quality Audition overview and procedures.

Below are the Announced Excerpts for each Chorus. On the day of the VQ Audition, two additional pieces for each chorus will be announced and recorded.

For each voice part, there is a Predominant track and a Muted track. The Predominant track highlights the indicated voice part more prominently than the other parts; this is useful for rehearsal. The Muted track plays the balanced voices minus the tested voice part. The Muted track will be used during the actual Vocal Quality Audition. Note the different part splits for different FVA districts and refer to the Omnibus for your correct part.
