All-State Vocal Quality Audition Excerpts Released

Please visit the All-State Vocal Audition page to see the “announced” excerpts for the HS Concert Chorus, HS Women’s Chorus, HS Men’s Chorus, MS Mixed Chorus, and MS Treble Chorus auditions. For the final phase of testing, each student will record the ascending and descending vocalises, the announced excerpt for their registered chorus, and two additional excerpts that will be announced at the audition. Rehearsal tracks for the “announced” excerpts have been posted for your convenience.

Remember that each auditioning student must have their own set of ORIGINAL music with them at the audition! Not having a music packet, or having photocopied music will result in disqualification!

2017 All-State Reading Chorus

The Florida Vocal Association is proud to recognize the students with the highest scores on this year’s All-State Sight Reading Test with membership in the 2017 All-State Reading Chorus! This year, the Reading Chorus numbers a little more than 100 singers, including 29 students who received a perfect score of 40 measures on the test!

These students will have the opportunity to read over 50 pieces of music (including one selection live on stage) with their conductor, Dr. Trent Brown from Florida Gulf Coast University. Congratulations to these singers, their directors, and their schools for this distinction!
