We continue to implement a cap for auditions.  You will be able to send 4 students per divisi for a total of 32 singers.  Schools with choral program enrollment of over 175 will be given an additional "flex 8" of voice parts of their choosing.  An administrator will need to verify program enrollment to qualify for the flex 8.

A gentle early reminder:  District choir directors will be serving as room monitors during auditions.  Please plan ahead to sign up to work for half (or all) of the evening in an audition room.  Details and sign-ups will be provided when we return in August.

Our festival conductor is Dr. Robert Sinclair from Vandercook College of Music.  Festival selections are as follows:

All State Selections:

Regina Coeli – Mozart/Boyd SATB  pdf sheet music      accompaniment mp3

IMPORTANT:  the first version that was on the ILMEA website of the "Regina" there are two errors in the TENOR part that need to be corrected.  A revised standard version is currently on the website under the Chorus Division.


Please check and correct the following if necessary:

1)  TENOR:  In the old version, m. 95:  beat four should be corrected to a D (eighth note) instead of the incorrect E


2)  TENOR:  In m. 104:  beat two should be corrected to a C (quarter note) instead of the incorrect  D (quarter note)
