Vocalists chosen for All State Chorus

Greater Atlanta Christian School vocalists have been selected for the All State Chorus in Athens, GA on February 25-27.  All State Chorus is sponsored by the Georgia Music Educators Association (GMEA).  Students from throughout the state begin a series of auditions in November. 

Initial auditions include scales, sight reading, and a theory test.  Second round becomes more rigorous, performing 6-7 pieces of choral music before the judges.  The finalists are evaluated on portions of each piece and then selected for the All State Chorus.  The Senior High and Junior High choirs rehearse with the best clinicians from across the country beginning February 25th  and offer a concert at the Classic Center in Athens, GA on February 27th.
