The All State Choir Board is proud to announce our dates for ASC22! We will be hosting an in-person Colorado All State Choir January 20th-22nd, 2022. Our choirs will perform at the Buell and lodge at the Embassy Suites, just like our last in-person festival in 2020. Our Board is proud to secure these dates and we are pleased to have our concert in such a beautiful acoustical setting.
Sept. 30-Oct. 2 Southern
I know it took longer for us to announce dates this year, and the ASC Board and I thank you for your patience and understanding. We all know how insane this year has been and securing these contracts was no easy feat, especially with our colleagues at the Buell furloughed or reassigned to different roles in the City of Denver while the stage was closed.
I have been proud to see music living on in creative ways throughout the state during these *ahem* incredible times. On behalf of myself and the ASC Board, we wish you a graceful and positive end to your semesters, and a rejuvenating Summer Break. May you be recharged and refreshed during the warmer months!
Please see below for answers to some commonly asked questions.
Why is the festival before CMEA this year, and not after?
When we decided to move to the Buell, we knew we would have to be flexible with dates. Unfortunately, the “normal” weekend of ASC (in February) is taken by other groups. The best they could offer us is a 4th hold on that date, meaning there would be 3 other groups with priority over ASC. With 10s of thousands of dollars on the line, we cannot afford to gamble that the other 3 groups would drop out.
The ASC Board wants to give your singers the absolute best acoustical experience possible, so we prioritize working with the Buell for that reason.
Will this conflict with CMEA22?
Nope! CMEA22 is January 26th-29th, 2022.
What about COVID?
We will be working with district officials and closely monitoring health regulations for our in-person event next year. ASC will keep you up-to-date on any changes we experience. With the vaccines comes hope for the future, and we are excited by the possibility of a “normal” in-person festival. We will work with you and your districts to ensure this is a safe and wonderful All State Choir.
How can I stay informed?
We know a LOT of turnover is happening in choir programs across the state. Please make sure every new Choir Director in your district emails either me or Kaitlin Miles with their contact information – that way we can ensure everyone is on the email blasts.
Also, please follow us on Instagram and Facebook for reminders and details about ASC22.
