2021 TCDA Virtual MS/JH All-State Choir

We are pleased to announce the 2021 TCDA All-State MS/JH Choir, under the direction of Jacob Narverud.

Dr. Narverud is the Director of Choral Activities at Emporia State University in Kansas and is the Founder and Artistic Director of the Tallgrass Chamber Choir. The TCDA All-State Choir will be a part of the 2021 TCDA Convention to be held in San Antonio, Texas, July 22-24, 2021. This auditioned group will consist of approximately 200 students who have completed grades 6, 7 and 8. Students selected to the chorus will be expected to learn one – two pieces of selected music to participate in a VIRTUAL CHOIR PERFORMANCE. TCDA has made the decision NOT to have the choir present at our summer convention.  Instead, this selected All-State choir will perform a virtual concert on Saturday afternoon, July 24, at our in-person convention.  This is a once in a lifetime experience for your students, and an incredible opportunity to work with the wonderful master teacher, Jacob Narverud.


Choir members will be responsible for all expenses associated with the All-State Choir. This includes the audition fee ($15), and if selected, registration fee ($75).  The $15 audition fee is non-refundable, no exceptions. If selected, it is understood the student is expected to commit to the event, including some on-line rehearsals. The non-refundable registration fee of $75 is due on or before May 5, 2021. This fee covers organizational expenses, an official TCDA All-State Choir t-shirt, patch, music, and rehearsal recordings.
