FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CCPS Students Selected for All State Chorus and Band/Orchestra

Sixty-six choral students from Calvert County Public Schools (CCPS) were selected for the Maryland All State Junior and Senior Choruses. An additional three students were selected as alternates.

Five CCPS students were selected for the prestigious All Eastern Chorus.

Dr. Daniel D. Curry, Superintendent, said, “This impressive showing from a small school district clearly shows the depth of instruction in our choral music program. We are very proud of our teachers and students.”

Lurr Ragen, a bassoon player from Calvert High, was selected as an alternate for the Senior Band/Orchestra.

The number of students selected is particularly impressive given the size of Calvert County Public Schools relative to other districts in Maryland. Only two counties—Montgomery and Howard—had more students chosen for All State at both the junior and senior levels. Plum Point Middle School had more students selected for All State Junior Chorus than any other school in the state.

During the auditions for the All State Choruses, students must perform both an accompanied and an a cappella piece, as well as perform two rhythmic and two melodic sight reading examples. Students are evaluated on vocal quality, performance accuracy of sung selections, and ability to read and sing accurately and on pitch. The All State events are sponsored by the Maryland Music Educators Association.

To be eligible to audition for the All Eastern Chorus, students must attend school in one of the eleven Northeastern states (Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont), the District of Columbia, or the Department of Defense School in Europe. They must also have been selected to perform or served as an alternate in their state's 2017-18 or 2018‐2019 All State festival, depending upon state requirements, on the voice part for which they are applying. All Eastern events are sponsored by the National Association for Music Education.
