All-State Chorus Results

On Saturday, October 21, 2017, 23 students from Urbandale High School auditioned for the Iowa All-State Chorus. The selection process is very competitive, with approximately 17% of auditionees being selected to participate in the All-State Music Festival in Ames, Iowa on November 16 – 18, 2017. It is the highest individual honor a student can receive from the Iowa High School Music Association.


Urbandale students who audition for the Iowa All-State Chorus undertake a rigorous process of quartet rehearsals, study with private teachers, multiple mock auditions, and hours of individual and quartet practice time.
