Greetings from the North Dakota All-State committee. This year North Dakota All-State is hoping to do an in-person festival for students if conditions improve. We will monitor the situation and keep you informed as festival dates get closer.
We have changed the audition process just for this year to be recorded auditions. The auditions will be uploaded to a Google form which is similar to NDACDA Honor Choir and Junior High Band auditions. The audition procedure will be updated on our website soon. Teachers should fill out a student form and a teacher form. This year’s auditions will consist of the following items which were previously published in the online All-State manual.
Solo selection (Vocal - accompanied or unaccompanied)
Scales - Instrumental
Due to the use of recorded auditions, we will not have a sight-reading section for this year. Registration and fees will be due when recordings submitted are by January 8th. All submissions after Jan. 8 will need to include a $50 Late fee. There are two payment options listed below. Payment can all be done online this year.
Mail a single school check by teacher made out to:
ND All-State c/o Jon Baumann
Mandan High School
905 8th Ave NW, Mandan, ND 58554
Checks postmarked after Jan. 8 will need to include a $50 late fee. Checks will not be accepted with a postmark after Jan. 11.
By School Credit Card - use link on ndallstate.org auditions page. Payments made after Jan. 8 will pay a $50 late fee. No payments will be accepted after Jan. 11.
We will be recognizing 4 year award winners. Be sure to indicate possible 4 year All-State members. The spellings for the North Dakota All-State program and lists are taken directly from registrations so please double check that the students' names are spelled correctly when registering them.
Please check the ndallstate.org website for the latest information.
This has been a very unusual year. Thank you for all you do for our young musicians in North Dakota.
