2012 NJMEA ALL-STATE OPERA FESTIVAL Stevie Rawlings, Paramus HS - Festival Chair Solo/Ensemble Auditions: (no costumes) Fri., Oct. 26, 2012, 4:00 PM Festival Date: Sat., Nov. 17, 2012, 9:00 AM, Concert at 3:00 PM Audition and Festival Site: Paramus High School, East 99 Century Road, Paramus, NJ 07652

The NJMEA Opera Festival provides a unique opportunity for the most talented students in your chorus to perform opera literature, receive a critique, and attend a clinic and workshop. An aria from any opera is acceptable. To be considered for performance on the Festival day, soloists and ensembles must audition on the separate audition day. The term “ensemble” is used to designate any group other than a solo, e.g., duet, trio, and so on. A student can attend only the clinic and workshop on the day of the Festival and not perform a solo or in an ensemble selection, and therefore does not have to audition. We do require all students to sing in a chorus performance on the Festival day. The audition also serves as a competition for the designation of recipients for The Governor’s Award, Best Male and Female Soloists, and Best Ensemble. The chorus will sing two selections, the titles of which will be sent out via e-mail to sponsoring directors upon receipt of applications. Judging results (scores) and those accepted to perform on the Festival day will also be e-mailed to directors. Teachers, please prepare your students for the chorus numbers as time is limited on the Festival day. Concert dress is semi-formal or in character costume, your choice.

Audition/Participation Fee is $20.00 per student. Each participating student must fill out an application. Any voicing and any number of students may register. Directors, send all applications with ONE check payable to the NJMEA and enclose a copy of your current NAfME (formerly MENC) membership card postmarked by Wednesday, October 17, 2012 to Michael Kallimanis, All-State Opera Festival Audition Chair, Waldwick HS/MS, 155 Wyckoff Avenue, Waldwick, NJ 07463. After Oct. 17, applications will not be accepted. Sponsoring directors need not attend the audition but must be present from 10:30 AM until the end of the concert on the Festival day to assist with events.
