NEW JERSEY ALL-STATE WOMEN’S CHORUS
Joseph Cantaffa & Jennifer Alagna, Chorus Managers
Hello All-State Women!
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season, complete with time to relax with your family and friends.
It’s hard to believe that our concert is just one month away! I hope you have been working very diligently on your music. As you know, I am not able to attend the rehearsal on February 8. However, this is still a very important rehearsal to attend. I’m very grateful to the Directors who will be leading your rehearsal on the 8th. They will have a detailed outline from me with what needs to be covered (everything!). It is crucial that you are fully prepared.
The final pronunciation guide for La Maumariee is in the rehearsal sound files. You have everything you need to rehearse at home; pronunciation guides, files with your individual part, and links to full performance recordings. Remember that you have been specifically chosen to be a member of the All-State Women’s Chorus. You earned a place in this Chorus, but with that comes the responsibility to support your fellow choristers through your excellent preparation at home, focus, commitment, energy, attention to detail, and your musicianship. I think you have potential for an incredible performance; everyone just needs to do their part.
You will receive another reminder about this, but I love a very elegant and neat look, when it comes to hair. So, I would like all of you to wear your hair, for the performance, in either a French braid, or a bun. No pony tails, no hair hanging down. I am sure that many of you are able to do French braids, and that you can help each other on the day of the performance. If your hair is too short to pull back, I would like your hair pulled away from your face as much as possible. Please make sure you bring plenty of hair supplies with you.
I truly look forward to seeing you during the performance weekend later in February.
Rehearsal Dates: February 8th at JFK High School, Iselin, NJ (1PM – 5PM)
CONCERT: February 21st at NJPAC in Newark, NJ (tickets through NJPAC Box Office only – 1-888-GONJPAC or www.njpac.org)
NO PARENTS MAY STAY AT THE EAST BRUNSWICK HILTON DURING THE PERFORMANCE WEEKEND AND NO STUDENT MAY DRIVE HER OWN CAR AND PARK IT AT THE HILTON. SINGERS WILL BE BUSSED TO ALL OFF-PROPERTY REHEARSALS AND TO THE SHOW AT NJPAC WHERE THEY WILL BE DISMISSED TO THEIR FAMILIES AFTER THE SHOW. THERE WILL BE NO BUSSING BACK TO THE HILTON AFTER THE CONCERT.
Please bring a pencil and water to all rehearsals.
2014- 2015 NJ All-State Chorus
All-State Chorus members are expected to attend all rehearsals. One absence may be excused with the permission of the Manager in advance, unless that is clearly and truly impossible. If a student misses a second rehearsal, she will be removed from the All-State Chorus. There are no make-up rehearsals. “An absence is defined as missing any scheduled rehearsal or any part thereof.”
ALL activities involving the performance and the performance weekend must be attended as scheduled. Students must all rehearsals in their entirety in East Brunswick/Rutgers (the performance weekend). Failure to comply with this policy will result in removal from the All-State Chorus, loss of the All State Pin, and disqualification from any NJ All-State performing group for a period of one year up to and including the applicable event.
