The 2017 All-State Orchestra Director, Sey Ahn, has made significant last minute changes to the string bowings that effect the All-State string excerpts that students are preparing. New REVISED excerpts have been posted on the IHSMA website that reflect these changes. Any students auditioning on Violin, Viola, Cello or String Bass need to print off these newly revised parts and begin preparing them.
While, it is never our intent to change excerpts after they have been posted, we feel, given the scope of these changes, that it is necessary to make them now, early in the process, rather then later after the excerpts have been learned or at the All-State Festival itself.
