* Our district choir clinician, Dr. Charles Robinson, decided to program two of the audition pieces, and a third piece from the All-State repertoire. He decided not to include the Aspaas arrangement of "Sing On, Dance On" since he wants Dr. Aspaas to present this with his own distinctive interpretation and insights, and without any bias from Dr. Robinson.
