All-State Choral Workshop

August 5 - 7
8:00 AM - 4:30 PM


Join us on August 5-7 as we host an All-State Choral Workshop for high school students.  

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, Bob Anderson, Amy Farley, and Show Choir Director 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 will be made available to each participant and director on the All-State 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 26.
