Greetings Teachers,

Hope your year is off to a fantastic start. You will find the excerpts for the All-State Jazz and Show Choir auditions included in this email, as well as on the ACE website. This year our Jazz selections is an arrangement of a swing tune called “Mister Hooper’s Find It In a Minute Book.” Here is a link to download the PDF chart and MP3 demo:

Jeremy Fox, our Jazz Choir Clinician has selected an excerpt for us starting at measure 73 through 89. We have included the dropbox to a PDF of the chart because the excerpt is as written voice part, and in the event you wanted to practice it with your singers altogether, you will have that ability. Ryan Holder will be working with our Jazz Clinic Choir this year.

Paul Gulsvig and Kye Brackett will serve as our Show Choir Clinicians. For that audition we will be using Shut Up and Dance.

Auditions will once again be at Boulder Creek High School located at 40404 N. Gavilan Peak Blvd in Anthem on September 15th. Registration for the Jazz and Show Choirs are open and being collected until Friday, August 25th. Please list any conflicts any students may have on your form to avoid any schedule conflicts. If your student is selected, the Festival will take place at Horizon High School on November 15th-17th.

Our Jazz Choir Chairperson is Meg Foote
Jazz Clinic Choir Chairperson is Robin Neely
Show Choir Chairperson is Chris Hughes.
I am the of VP Jazz and Show activities.

Please let any of us know if you have questions.
All My Best,
Kirk Douglas
