“We are extremely proud of the hard work and dedication these students have put into their craft to continue to excel at the state level,” shared Danae Marinelli, Dysart Schools Director of Arts.
The All-State Show Choir is part of the Arizona All-State Jazz/Show Choir Festival. It is a choir of approximately 60 high school students selected from the state. Selection is made through an audition process which requires a live singing and dancing audition. Selected students learn and memorize the performance songs before attending the three-day long festival where they learn the choreography and refine the music. This festival performance will be held on February 2nd at Mesa Community College Performing Arts Center with the All State Jazz Choir beginning at 6:30 pm followed by the All State Show Choir at 8:00 pm.
