The All-State Workshop is open to all high school students interested in preparing the Iowa All-State Choral repertoire. Mount Mercy’s Director of Music Activities Dr. Gerry Kreitzer and distinguished clinicians Carol Tralau, Allen Chapman, Duane Philgreen and Kent Keating will assist the singers in learning notes, rhythms and texts for each piece. They will also offer coaching in the expression and style of each piece, and offer helpful approaches and demonstrations of the audition process.
A track of each piece with voice part highlighted, and the final recording session will be made available to each participant and director on this web page.
Singers must purchase or secure from their high school choral director their own all-state music packet to bring with them. Packets may be purchased beginning July 28:
