The two scores are averaged for their final score that is used for selection.
To ensure a balanced choir that truly reflects an All State experience, selected students are allocated proportionately from districts. For example, if 10% of the total audition submissions came from District 1, 15% from District 2, 23% from District 3, etc., the final choirs will be composed of 10% District 1 students, 15% District 2, 23% District 3, etc.
This system also breaks down by voice part, so all students from one voice part in one district are only competing with students in their voice part/district.
Once district proportions and cut-off scores are determined, the numbered auditions are realigned with student names, and notifications are sent.
