What is All-State: Alabama All-State Choir Festival is an exciting opportunity for students to participate with other schools around the state in an honor choir. Students will audition and be selected to participate in the honor choir. Students selected will attend the Alabama All-State Festival held annually at Samford University and have the opportunity to showcase their hard work in a final concert on Samford’s campus.
