Monday, August 5, 2024 - 8:00am to Tuesday, August 6, 2024 - 5:30pm

All-State Summer Choir Camp

The 21st annual All-State Choir Camp will be held on the Iowa State University campus in Simon Estes Music Hall on Monday, August 5 -
Tuesday, August 6th.  A team of qualified clinicians, led by Dr. James Rodde, will assist high school singers prepare for their All-State auditions by working on the techniques of pitch, rhythm, and text for each piece of music. The team will also give guidance for expressive interpretations and will offer tools for improving intonation.  A healthful approach to singing will be a primary consideration.  It would be advantageous for schools to send balanced quartets, but all interested singers will be accepted. 

After the two days, the participants will record each piece.  The recording will be made available to each student and director along with midi tracks that highlight each voice part.  

It is the singer's responsibility to obtain the All-State music packets. These will be available through West Music Store in Coralville, IA. Find the order form here:  westmusic.com/allstate or call 1-800-397-9378.

Participating students must make their housing arrangements.  A listing of hotels in Ames can be found here. Participants are responsible for transportation to and from the camp.  Please note that Iowa State University bears no responsibility for the supervision of participants outside of the All-State Choir Camp.   

Parking is available at the ISU Memorial Union parking ramp.
