The basic question of this study was: What are the comparative values of the All-State and Evaluative Choral Festivals in Arkansas? Subordinate questions studied were: (1) What are the procedures of the events with reference to the Manual? (2) What are the goals of these two events? Are they being met? (3) Should either event be eliminated? (4) What are the reactions of the participants to the organization and adjudication of these events? (5) Is there justification for the amount of time and money spent on the achievement of the goals? (6) What recommendations can be suggested for the improvement of these events?
