2020-21 SCKMEA High School Honor Groups to use Recorded Auditions

SCKMEA will use online recorded auditions for all high school honor groups for the 2020-21 school year. Additional information, including audition materials for each ensemble, will be further specified as chairs complete their plans.

2020-21 SCKMEA Honor Group Waiver of Enrollment Requirement

For the 2020-2021 school year only, a student may audition (or be nominated) for an SCKMEA honor ensemble even if the student is unable to participate in their school's music program due to circumstances resulting from COVID-19. Any student in such a situation must work with their school's music teacher(s) to complete the necessary SCKMEA forms and procedures. By submitting a student's audition or nomination, a teacher verifies that the student is or has previously been a member of their school's music program in good standing.
