All-State Chorus and Orchestra Background Information

The South Dakota All-State Chorus members are selected locally by the choral directors in each high school. Each school is allowed to bring a predetermined number of quartets based on schoolís enrollment. This year, the chorus numbers 962 singers representing 155 high schools.

The members of the South Dakota All-State Orchestra are selected each fall by competitive auditions at three sites around the State. A full symphony orchestra is then selected from among the best musicians in South Dakota. This yearís orchestra has 158 musicians representing 27 schools.

The past two days have been spent in intense rehearsal getting the program into final readiness for this eveningís concert. Our heartiest congratulations are extended to the students, teachers and guest conductors who have made this such a memorable occasion.
