TESTIMONIALS
“I was so excited to be accepted into the choir! Being in All-State helped me grow as a person, without a doubt, and gave me more confidence to go and do what I want to do!”

“I really enjoyed meeting other people with the same passion I have and being able to do what I love, which is music.”
“Our director was encouraging and inspiring and really offered a greater insight and resurgence of why I love music and why I am choosing to study it. I absolutely loved this experience and hope many after me continue to get to sing with such a supportive and friendly group!”

“Being in choir has helped me stand out more. I was normally a shy kid growing up. Now I’m known as the guy who isn’t afraid of any type of social situation. Choir has also taught me about many different cultures and different ways of expressing myself. It has inspired me to go out and look for all different types of adventure.”

“My favorite part of the experience was the fact that there was ZERO judgment. Everyone was there for different reasons but no one felt targeted or uncomfortable during the experience. We all got pretty close and even got to share some information about ourselves. All-state isn't really just about being a part of a talented choir – it is also about meeting new people, getting to experiment, going to a different town, and crawling out of your comfort zone. Most importantly, it is a chance to get to share similar interests with people you don't know! I made so many friends at All-State that I still talk to today.”

“The All-State Choir was a great opportunity and I am so glad to have been a part of it. We spent two days working hard on learning five pieces and still had fun along the way. This taught me that you can do anything you put your mind to. Though we spent a lot of time working, we also had plenty of time to make friendships. There were so many talented people in that one room...Knowing they were all here for one reason boosted my confidence. I sang my heart out because I knew I wouldn't be judged, knowing everyone here cares as much as I do.  Halfway through the performance, I looked around. At the conductor, fellow singers, and the audience. I was holding in tears. I was about to cry on stage because you really built a family in those two days together. I may not know all of them personally, but leaving them was so hard. I loved this experience and hope to have it again.”
