General Information

Please inform qualified and interested students in your music groups about the All-State Honor Groups and assist those who apply in preparing the audition materials. Students are eligible for All-State Honor Groups if they are regularly enrolled or dual-enrolled members of a school concert music ensemble in grades 9-12 in Idaho and their director is a current member of the Idaho Music Educators Association.

You must be a member of IMEA/NAfME or your students will not be considered for membership in any All-State group. IMEA is the sole sponsor and adminstrator of these Honor Groups; your membership in the organization will be checked at the time your students apply. If you are not a current member, your students will not be able to audition. If, for some reason, you have put off renewing your IMEA/NAfME membership and cannot access the registration page, please register and send a copy of your electronic receipt to Wayne Millett, the web master. He will have to enter you manually into the IMEA system. We do not get automatic updates from NAfME that magically appear in our system. It can take up to one week to register and add you to system. Please don't put it off. Join or renew NOW!

Because this event is sanctioned by the Idaho High Schools Activity Association (IHSAA) your school must be a member of that organization in order for your students to participate. If your school is not a member of IHSAA, but you are a member of NAfME/IMEA, you students still cannot participate. Both membership requirements must be met.

The sizes of the All-State groups (pending successful auditions) will be Band—140, String Orchestra—90, MixedChoir—200, Treble Choir—120, Jazz Band—22, Jazz Choir—40.

Organizing Chairmen are, Band - Casey Emerson; Jazz Band - Quentin DeWitt; Jazz Choir - Corrina Steinbach; Mixed Choir - Joie Cariaga; Orchestra - Brendan Burns; and Treble Choir - Lindsay Lowe.

Registration fees covering music, clinicians, meals, T-shirts, etc. will be set at the Fall Board meeting.

If any of your students were in All-Northwest, they will NOT automatically be in All-State. They must make a recording of the All-State tryout materials.

If I can be of any assistance to you in your preparation for All-State, please call me anytime. I wish you and your students much success and look forward to meeting each of you at the convention January 30-February 2, 2019.

Recording Helps:

If you are total a novice at recording on your computer try to find someone around you that can help. Usually there will be student who will know what they are doing.

MP3 files should be recorded at the bit rate of 128kbps. Some programs call this the resolution. There should be a setting for it on your digital recorder or in the audio program that you record into.

A simple and free program that you can download to record with is Audacity. It works on both Mac and Windows, is easy to use, and is very versatile. Click on the link to go to the download page. The Audacity Tutorials are also very good for learning the basics of recording. You can find them HERE.

If you are on a Mac and want to use an external microphone, you will need a separate USB interface. One of the cheapest and easiest to use is the iMic by Griffin Technologies. Cost is between $30-$50 at most computer stores.

To convert a different file format to MP3 using iTunes:

  1. Start iTunes and open the Preferences
  2. Under General look for the Import Settings button
  3. Click on that and change the Import Using menu to MP3 Encoder. Make sure that you have "High Quality (160 kbps)" selected under "Setting". If you use the "Higher Quality (190 kbps)" setting, your file may be too large and will not import.
  4. Click OK to save the settings and exit back to iTunes
  5. Right click on the file you want to convert (or Control click on the Mac) and select Create MP3 Version
  6. Locate the new file and drag it to the desktop. It should have a .mp3 at the end of the file name. This is the file you want to upload for the audition.
  7. Contact Wayne Millett the Web Master if you are totally lost and need help.

Frequently asked questions about the In-Service Conference Registration

Q:   Can I register for the In-Service Conference online?
A:   Yes! Online Pre-Registration is done through the OpusEvents. Go to OpusEvents to register.

Q:   Can I pay my registration fee with a credit card?
A:   Credit cards will be accepted. (You may also send a school or personal check. Purchase orders will NOT be accepted!)

Q:   I don't teach high school and I don't have students in All-State. Can I come at a reduced fee?
A:   IMEA/NAfME represents all levels and all areas of music education; consequently, the full fee is expected of all active music educators, regardless of their area or level of instruction. The In-Service Conference and the Idaho High School All-State are two separate events that are held at the same time. The sessions and concert hours at the In-Service are designed to address every teaching level and area.

Q:   How do I join IMEA/NAfME?
A:   You can join NAfME/IMEA by accessing the national web site at: www.nafme.org. (High school instructors need to remember to keep their membership current in order for their students to be eligible for All-State and the State Solo Contest.)

Q:   What does my registration includ?
A:   All registrations (with the exception of the FREE retired category) include 1 banquet ticket and entrance to all clinics, concert hours, exhibits and both GALA Concerts. Extra banquet tickets and extra GALA Concert tickets are available on the registration form. A limited number of banquet tickets will be available on-site.

The fine print ...
  • IMEA will accept NAfME membership cards for Conference Registration that are current through February 3, 2018. Members without a current valid membership will be notified by email and must renew at the time they register at the In-Service Conference or prior to the Conference.
  • If a member claims to have paid NAfME, but has not yet received a valid membership card, it shall be the responsibility of the IMEA Secretary to immediately check with the NAfME director of membership and finance. If membership is verified by NAfME, admission will be assured; if membership is not verified, the member must make membership payment at the registration site and a stop-pay at NAfME will be issued.

All-State Housing Information

IMEA will no longer be providing housing for All-State groups, however, we have blocks of rooms reserved for schools to contact and claim.  Directors, once you know how many rooms you need, it will be your responsibility to reserve and pay for the rooms.  This also means that schools will be in charge of chaperoning their students after the night activities until the morning check-in at rehearsals.  Make sure to reserve a room for your director and/or chaperone as well.  If you have any questions, please contact Ron Curtis for more information. 

The following hotels have blocks of room held for All-State. When reserving rooms, please tell them you are with IMEA All State.  The rates are what Karen Randolph, IMEA Executive Director, was quoted and should be honored.  Clarify if you need two beds in each room unless otherwise listed. All hotels except for Motel 6 have breakfast included.  These rooms are only held until December 31 so make your reservation ASAP.
