Dear All-State Treble Chorus Member,

Congratulations on your acceptance into the 2019 NJMEA All-State Treble Chorus! It is our privilege to welcome you to this prestigious ensemble. This e-mail will contain vital information that will enable you to have a successful All-State Treble Chorus experience…please read in its entirety!

The first rehearsal will be Saturday, September 15th from 8:30 to Noon at Piscataway High School, 100 Behmer Road, Piscataway, NJ 08854.

Arrive at 8:00 am so that check-in will move smoothly and quickly. You will then move into the auditorium and receive instructions on where to sit. Rehearsal begins promptly at 8:30 am. If you are late, it may count as an absence, so allow extra time for travel. You must also sign out in order for the rehearsal to count.

Near the conclusion of rehearsal, parents/guardians should be at Piscataway High School by 11:45 pm to pick you up. Rehearsal will end by 12 noon.

IMPORTANT INFO REGARDING HOUSING AND PARTICIPATION FEES:

The participation and housing fees must be paid directly to the NJMEA Office, either by credit card, check, or PO by September 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. Also, there will be no refunds after November 15, 2018.
