Nomination Process

Log into RNS at ilmea.org. click "All-State E Chorus" and nominate as many deserving students who should be available to attend as you would like. Directors rank their students. ILMEA will accept as many as possible (not all students will necessarily be accepted) and notify you of how many are accepted in early December. Students are not required to have participated in the All District Elementary Chorus but it is a great next step for those who did!


Repertoire, Conductors

...Conductors are always high energy, dynamic, top notch educators with lots of experience with this age group. Repertoire includes a foreign language/classical piece, world music piece, American folk piece, fun piece, and combined piece with both choirs. More details will come with acceptance notification.
