Dear All-State Women’s Chorus Member,
We hope you have enjoyed your last days of summer vacation! School has started and your first All-State rehearsal will soon be here. Congratulations, once again, for being selected to sing with this prestigious group. All of your hard work and practice has gotten you to this point and now the best is yet to come! You are in for an awesome experience as a member of the NJ All-State Women’s Chorus. With that in mind, be prepared to work hard and long. Being in All-State is an honor and a responsibility. It is now up to you to continue the tradition of excellence for which the New Jersey All-State ensembles are recognized, while you represent your school, family, community, music department and yourself with the best that you have as a person and a musician. Your conductor this year is Dr. Deanna Joseph of Georgia State University!
Please take a moment to review the attendance policy with your family and your high school choral director. Please make every effort to be at all the rehearsals, particularly this first one on September 21st at East Brunswick High School. IF YOU MISS MORE THAN ONE REHEARSAL FOR ANY REASON AT ALL, YOU WILL BE DISMISSED FROM THE CHORUS. IF YOU ARRIVE LATE OR LEAVE EARLY FROM ANY PART OF ANY REHEARSAL IT IS COUNTED AS AN ABSENCE FROM THAT REHEARSAL. Students who miss a rehearsal may be tested at the start, or during, the next rehearsal and students failing that test will be immediately dismissed from the ensemble without further warning.
YOU MAY NOT MISS ANY PART OF ANY OF THE REHEARSALS DURING THE PERFORMANCE WEEKEND FOR ANY REASON!
Please check schedules for school musicals and sports, especially for tournament and championship games for which your team may not yet have qualified – YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DO BOTH THAT WEEKEND.
REHEARSAL CD: Rehearsal CDs have been replaced by mp3 tracks, and will be available at www.njmea.org. The cost for creating these tracks is included in your participation fee.
CHECK-IN: Please arrive no later than 8AM so that you can locate the Women’s Chorus Check-In table, correct any mis-spellings to your name and be ready to begin on time. You will also receive your music folder at check-in on September 21st. Pick up time will be 12:00 PM.

Please bring a pencil and water to all rehearsals.

Please take a moment to thank your directors and parents for all they have done for you and will continue doing for you so that you may participate in this very prestigious musical ensemble.

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.
