All-State Workshops & High School Visitors

UPCOMING EVENTS


THE FALL 2019 LONGHORN ALL-STATE CHOIR WORKSHOP HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

Unfortunately, due to District-round auditions for RRISD, GISD, and AISD, we do not have enough students registered to effectively put on this camp – the UT Football Schedule prevents us from being able to host guests for the rest of the month, so rescheduling for this school year is not a possibility.

Please look ahead toward next year when we will hopefully be able to avoid any potential TMEA/scheduling conflicts.

Questions? Contact Chris Truong at texaschoirsofficial@gmail.com for any clarifications about the above information.


LOOKING AHEAD: Fall 2020; Longhorn All-State Choir Workshop

Event Description:

All large-school Texas choirs are invited to send motivated singers to workshop and perform this year’s TMEA large- school All-State Choir repertoire with members of the UT Concert Chorale. Sectionals will be led by local high school directors and Mass Choir rehearsals will be conducted by Dr. James Morrow, Director of Choral Activities; and Dr. Suzanne Pence, Associate Professor of Music and Human Learning and Director of the UT Concert Chorale. The entire workshop will culminate in a Mass Choir Performance Demonstration in Bates Recital Hall at the Butler School of Music. Admission to the performance is free and all family and friends are invited to celebrate with us!

Day-of Schedule: TBD for Fall 2020

PERKS:

In addition to enjoying a UT Choirs-provided lunch with your friends, getting to sing with UT Concert Chorale and learning your All-State repertoire, you will also receive information on becoming a Longhorn and joining us at the University of Texas in the future. After all, what starts here changes the world.

Questions? Contact Chris Truong at texaschoirsofficial@gmail.com for any clarifications about registration or day-of proceedings.


Interested in visiting Texas Choirs?

UT Music Shadow Days

Come to Austin and shadow a UT freshman music major to experience what it’s like to be a Longhorn for a day! E-mail Dr. Suzanne Pence at pence@austin.utexas.edu for more information. You will get to live an entire school day in the shoes of one of amazing music majors, while getting to ask the real questions you might have for an actual student! This is a great way to get to see college-level rehearsals, voice lessons, and even theory/piano classes!

Rehearsal Visits

Interested in sitting in on one of our choral ensemble rehearsals? Please e-mail texaschoirsofficial@gmail.com to let us know that you would like to visit, and we’ll make sure to have a chair ready for you (maybe even some music so you can follow along!)

If you are a high school director bringing an entire choir program or ensemble, please let us know at least two weeks in advance of your visit so that we can more easily accommodate you!

Rehearsal Schedule: (You may sit in on more than one ensemble during your stay!)
