The selectivity of these ensembles is evidenced by the fact that approximately 12-15% of the students who audition are selected. Fairfield can also be proud that they had the 3rd highest number of students selected in the southeast district, behind only Iowa City West and Iowa City City High. Instrumental coaches are Jim Edgeton and Aaron Adam. Vocal coaches are Connie Keller and Zach Reiter.
The All-Staters will be rehearsing at Iowa State University November 17-19, with the concert scheduled for Saturday night, November 19 in Hilton Coliseum. The event is under the auspices of the Iowa High School Music Association, in conjunction with the Iowa Music Educators Association.
