All students will wear choir robes on top of the concert attire for both of the performances. Make sure to borrow one of your school’s robes.

If your school does not have robes you need to borrow a robe. If you have to borrow a robe please fill out the below form..

Robe Form: www.tinyurl.com/AllStateChoirRobe18 (Deadline 12:00 PM Monday, November 5th)

You will not be able to perform without a robe. You will not receive your all state pin unless you return your robe after each all state concert.

Underneath your robe you should wear:

  • Women: Black or Nude colored tights, with a black dress or a black skirt/black shirt (with sleeves), & black close toed flats (No high heels! – heels longer than .5 inch will make going up and down the risers hazardous). Dresses and skirts should be longer than your fingertips, when your arms are at your sides.
  • Men: Black dress pants, a black or white button up shirt, black socks, & black dress shoes. White or black tie/bow tie optional.


Plan to eat meals with the All-State Chorus for the following meals:

  • Wednesday Dinner
  • Thursday Breakfast & Dinner
  • Friday Breakfast & Dinner

All students must attend all meals and must stay for the entire duration of the meal until they are dismissed by the managers. You will be signed in and out of every meal.

Students will be given a sum of money ($25 total) for lunch on the boardwalk for Thursday and Friday – if you feel that this is not enough, you may also bring your own money to spend on food.

The participation and housing fees must be paid directly to the NJMEA Office, either by credit card, check, or PO by August 1, 2018. If the fee is not paid, you may not attend the September rehearsal until it is paid, and this will count as your one and only absence. If the fees are not paid by September 15, 2018 you will not be able to participate in NJ All-State Chorus. There will be no refunds after September 15, 2018.

You are allowed ONE absence. An absence is defined as missing a rehearsal OR ANY PART THEREOF; therefore you are not allowed to be late or to leave early.

You must perform at BOTH CONCERTS in order to receive your all-state pin and to maintain eligibility for the following year.
