THE NEW JERSEY MUSIC EDUCATORS ASSOCIATION a federated state association of NATIONAL ASSOCIATION for MUSIC EDUCATION News From Our Division Chairs Our auditions worked very well, and we will be sharing all information directly with directors and students, thanks to Rick Retzko’s


online registration process. I also want to thank Christie Scott, our new member of the auditions team, for her incredible work ethic as she became familiar with the many twists and turns of the audition process. Cheryl Breitzman kept us organized on the audition days thanks to the rest of our choral procedures committee: Steven Bell, Tom Voorhis, Jamie Bunce, Hillary Colton, Wayne Mallette, Matthew Lee, Helen Stanley, Barbara Retzko and Mike Doheny who all worked behind the scenes to collect, organize, check math, and enter all the scores on both days. I have been so fortunate to work with this amazing group of dedicated people as they keep All-State Chorus working for ALL directors and students. As we go into the new school year, I will be passing on the chair of this committee to Wayne Mallette. Wayne will do a fabulous job lead- ing the choral procedures committee! He is organized, tech savvy, and kind. The perfect combination! I had said back in September that I was going to leave the committee in June because it’s time for me to be a grandma, and now we are expecting two grandchildren in August and October! (And I didn’t even pester them!)


I’m sure I will be around at some activities, and I will be working with Wayne as well. So please know that I truly love all the directors and students that I have met over the years, and I love sharing the incredible power of music in our lives.
