The 2015-2016 All-State Choirs ere selected through an audition process begining in March. Close to 1000 high school students auditioned for one of the three All State Choirs. A team of judges listened to the student's auditions, evaluating them on their overall musicianship and technique. In mid-April, the MMEA ( Minnesota Music Educators Association) Executive Committe chose the final rosters, selecting 256 student to be members in the Minnesota All State Men's Choir, Women's Choir, and Mixed Choir. John was selected as a bass in the 2015-2016 Men's Choir. There is not a class system when selecting All State Choir members. Many students from the metro area audition to be in the Minnesota All State Choirs. To be selected as a member of the Minnesota All State Choir is a tremendous accomplishment and honor according to Shelly Wahlin, Fertile-Beltrami Choir director.
John reunited with the Mixed Choir in February to rehearse and perform at Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis on Feruary 13, 2016.
