All-State Choir Audition Guidelines:
From the TTCCDA Constitution and By-laws:
SECTION 2 - AUDITION/CERTIFICATION PROCESS
Each institution will be allowed to certify an octet (one student on a part). This octet shall include Soprano I and II, Alto I and II; Tenor I and II and Bass I and II. If an institution does not have a complete octet, then any additional singers will be certified as alternates at the time of the audition/certification process. The purpose of the audition/certification process is to certify that each student knows his or her part. It is not sufficient that an individual has attended a group rehearsal. Students must demonstrate knowledge of all the selected music. There must be three judges at each audition/certification site. If it is not possible for all three judges to be a TTCCDA choral director, the additional judges may be a music teacher from a college faculty or community.
