If the fees are not paid by September 15, 2019 you will not be able to participate in NJ All-State Chorus. Also, there will be no refunds after September 15, 2019.

 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.
