Audition materials for All-State and All-Northwest have been posted! This year is going to look a little different then years past. All-State and All-Northwest are happening at the same time, February 14-17 up in Portland for the Mega Conference. You may audition for All-State only, All-Northwest only, or both. However, if you make it into both ensembles you cannot be a part of both of ensembles since they will be occurring at the same time. Let me know if you have any questions.
General Info (Will be updated in September):
As always, I am incredibly proud of all of you. These lists took a great deal of thought and processing. While this is my least favorite part of my job, I am incredibly excited for the future and for you to be a part of it. Below are the advanced ensemble lists for 2018-2019.
I am so very proud of you all for your great auditions! Please review the below PDF file regarding call-back lists. Have a great weekend!
On April 12th the Silverton High School Concert Choir placed first at their league festival and received an automatic qualifier to the OSAA 5A Choir State Championships. They will perform on May 4th at George Fox University in Bauman Hall at 5 pm. Come and root for these awesome singers!
Here is a google drive link to our performance at our league festival:
Thank you all who auditioned for Choralaires. Below is the list for Choralaires 2017-2018
While this was not an easy process to compile names into lists, I am very proud and inspired by all of your singing within the audition room. To put yourself out there and to be vulnerable is a trait that I admire about all of you. Thank you for sharing your voices with me. Below is the ensemble lists for Concert Choir and Bellissima. Please read the audition statement to refresh your memory of the process.
Below is the list of call back participants for Choralaires. Thank you all for auditioning. Please review the list and call back materials on the website.
I hope that the end of the year is treating you all well! For those who are unfamiliar with All-State Choir, it is an auditioned ensemble compiled of top high school singers around the state of Oregon. If you are interested in learning more about the ensemble or want to audition, take a look at the information and audition materials here: https://www.oregonmusic.org/choir-auditions.html
We will begin auditions in September when we get back to school. I will record your audition and send it in. The school will take care of your audition fee.
Again, I apologize for the short notice, but I think we can make this work.
If you are interested in auditioning for All-State Choir, we have to get your audition fee ($10) and recordings submitted by October 1st. This is very possible to accomplish if you look through the audition material. Go to the OMEA website for general information here: https://www.oregonmusic.org/choir-auditions.html
Here is the audition material: https://www.oregonmusic.org/files/files/2017NAFMEAll-NorthwestVoice(1).pdf
Pick what voice part that will best fit you. Read ALL of the instructions on the Oregon Music website and on the audition materials, including the amount of what the event costs and how All-State works.
If you are interested in auditioning, come to my room after school on Tuesday, with your audition material printed and ready for you to use, and we can through it together and talk about the next steps in getting your audition recorded and sent. I will NOT be handing out audition material. You must get that ready for yourself. If you cannot make it Tuesday after school, but you are still interested, you can audition, but you will have to prepare the material on your own.
Let me know if you have any questions. All-Northwest information to follow.
Hello all! Welcome to the Silverton High School Choirs website. This blog will be used as a tool for any information regarding concerts, off-campus events, fundraising information, and more. The website will be under construction throughout the year. Eventually, we will have our social media pages connected to the website, more information about the choirs, updated pictures, and a student resource section that will help the students become more successful in class.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact Mr at anytime.
