READ THE MESSAGE
BELOW FROM
VOCAL DIVISION CHAIRMAN MICHAEL TOWNSEND CONCERNING AN IMPORTANT
SECOND ROUND AUDITION
CHANGE:

Colleagues-
After conversing over the weekend with
several teachers about “Kalinda” and the difficulty as well as the short time to learn the piece – it has been decided by LMEA officials that we will offer the students auditioning for 2nd round the option to sing the piece on text given or on neutral syllable.  This will eliminate the necessity FOR AUDITION ONLY the students having to learn the complex unfamiliar words/text and focus on the rhythms and notes.  Again – this is for auditions only.  If the student is selected for the All-State Mixed Choir – he/she is expected to be able to perform the piece with the text.  I will have the judges informed of this and the students will all receive the full points allotted for Diction on the audition sheet – all other factors for audition will be kept as is.

Please e-mail me if this is not clear on procedure or reason.  Thanks.
Please inform all your vocal teachers of this change.

On another note, Dr. John Dickson and Doctoral candidate Brenda Rudd of LSU are offering a day long rehearsal day of all the mixed choir pieces (including “Kalinda”) for All-State on October 17th.  This is an optional thing offered by LSU.  Students are not required to attend to be a part of the All-State Choir.
See note:

Dr. John Dickson, Head of Choral Activities at LSU, would like to support you in your outstanding work and accomplishments.  LSU will host the 2014 LSU ALL STATE DAY on Friday, October 17, 2014.
This is the first Friday after All-State Round II.  The purpose of this activity is to offer students who have been chosen to perform in the *2014 LA All State Mixed Choir *,
the opportunity to rehearse their concert music as an ensemble prior to the convention.  Section rehearsals will be conducted in the morning hours by the LSU faculty
and graduate staff.  While your students are in section rehearsals, Dr. Dickson will host a choral workshop for directors.
Lunch will be provided and then Dr. Dickson will conduct an *early* afternoon rehearsal of the all-state music with combined voice parts.

See LSU vocal music website for more info.
