Congratulations to all of the students selected to participate in the 2017 All-State Orchestras! The March auditions were very successful


again this year. The Procedures Committee would like to thank Auditions Chair, Phil Senseney and his hard working committee. Thank you to everyone involved to help make the auditions run smoothly. The procedures committee has selected the solo list and scales for the auditions next year. Once again, students will be required to play a specific edition for each piece. In addition, the high school scales will be different next year than the ones for this year (and last year). Please email me or talk to anyone on the procedures committee if you have any questions about audition requirements. Right now, the All-State Intermediate Orchestra is working hard to prepare for their concert on Saturday, May 13. The conductor, Brian


McGowan, has been working very well with them to perform a great program. The Honors Chamber Orchestra is currently rehearsing to perform on the same concert. Jim Millar is working with these high school students to prepare a great program as well. The All-State Orchestra will begin rehearsing this June. The conductor bio and program will be in the next TEMPO! As always, if you


are interested in getting involved with the All-State Orchestras, please feel free to email me or stop by a rehearsal. This past March was the third NJMEA Middle School Orchestra Festival. Thank you so much to Kim Williams and Joe Simon for


hosting at Bridgewater-Raritan Middle School. All of the ensembles that performed did a fantastic job. Thank you also to our adjudicator/ clinician, Michael Berry. It was a great experience for all of the students involved.
