Thank you for your interest in Colorado Middle All State Choir. We are currently in communication regarding plans and dates for our auditions and event this year, and will continue to work toward making decisions as quickly as we can receive and analyze the data surrounding singing and COVID-19. Please know that the safety of our students and directors will be at the forefront of our decision making, and will communicate as details are confirmed. Please contact your district governor to ensure that your email address is accurate and current with our records.
Colorado Middle All State Choir offers 7th and 8th grade students in Colorado a chance to audition for one of our three elite ensembles: Triplo, Mescolare, and Cambiato. Designed to be a transition between the Elementary and High School All State models, CMASC requires students to audition with a prepared piece, as well as demonstrate their technical skills, but ensures students from all CMEA Districts have representation at the event. The two-day event is held at the Colorado Convention Center, where students have the opportunity to sing with 150 other talented, motivated, and dedicated singers, as well as learn from elite clinicians from around the country. Additionally, the participants will interact with High School All State students and experience a performance by local elite ensembles. The culminating concert is held on the final evening in the 5,000 seat Bellco Theatre, and is open to the public.
