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, Orchestra-120, Mixed Choir—200, Treble Choir—120, Jazz Band—22, Jazz Choir—40.

Organizing Chairmen are, Band - John Randall; Jazz Band - Michael Harrison; Jazz Choir - Corbin Rasmussen; 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 29-February 1, 2020.

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.

He moved to Pocatello in 2015 after living and working as a professional musician in Los Angeles for nine years. During the course of his career, he has established a dynamic career as a band-leader, performer, contemporary composer, and innovative educator.

He has released two critically acclaimed albums through Orenda Records: “Farewell” (2013) features Armstrong’s expansive compositions for a 25-piece large jazz ensemble, and “Burnt Hibiscus” (2015) sets surrealist poetry to traditional Indian ragas for a 10-piece chamber jazz ensemble.

As a composer, Jonathan is passionate about collaborating with artists from other disciplines, writing music for theater, dance, and film. He also has composed a series of trance-inducing just intonation compositions for various chamber ensembles. At ISU, he has crafted dozens of unique arrangements for the student ensembles, often so that they can perform alongside the many brilliant jazz artists he brings in.

Jonathan continues to cultivate his career as a performer and composer in the intermountain west. He is a core member of the Kobie Watkins Grouptet, a jazz quintet that has toured extensively, and invited to perform an evening of music with the Idaho State-Civic Symphony, a concert that featured four of Armstrong’s arrangements for Orchestra.

Jonathan was awarded an Idaho Commission on the Arts grant to premiere "Gathering Resonance", a just intonation meditative piece for a chamber octet.

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.

2020 Idaho Orff Honor Ensemble

To all elementary music teachers and specialists in the State of Idaho,

Because of the dedication and perseverance of Dr. Lori Conlon Khan of the Lionel Hampton School of Music, IMEA president Kathi Stefani, the Idaho Orff Board, and many other Idaho music educators, IMEA and the Idaho Orff chapter will be hosting the Inaugural Idaho Honor Orff Ensemble in conjunction with the 2020 Idaho Music Educators Association (IMEA), All-State Conference at Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, Idaho. If you are ready for a boost in your teaching experience, have participated in your own riveting opportunities of sharing the stage with inspiring performances, we at Idaho Orff encourage you to read further.

The Orff pedagogy of the Schulwerk lends itself completely to the creative cohesive beauty of singing, moving and instrument playing within the make-up of a child. We invite you to read the attached information sheet for further details. Please email the registration coordinator, Lynne Groening for questions, and further information.

Share this opportunity with any elementary music teacher, specialist, choir director etc. that might want to check out this amazing performing platform. Time is of the essence. New ideas take longer to facilitate and execute.

Forms

What do I do with these forms?

The due date for selecting students is October 14. Please don't miss out on this musical opportunity.
