2021-22 SCKMEA High School Honor Groups to use Recorded Auditions
SCKMEA will use online recorded auditions for all high school honor groups for the 2021-22 school year. Additional information, including audition materials for each ensemble, will be further specified as chairs complete their plans. Please standby for further information regarding recorded audition procedure.

We have every intention of having rehearsals and performances on November 6 (HS Jazz Bands) and December 4 (HS Bands, Choirs, and Orchestra). This is subject to changes in restrictions or guidelines by our host facilities or county health officials. Watch for announcements about changes in locations for some of our honor ensembles.

Audition Registration
Registration of audition entries will be a dual-entry process.
  1. Auditions must be officially registered in the KMEA Members site.
  2. Festival Scores will be used only as a replacement for in-person audition and judging activities. Directors should watch the FS Director Tutorial to become familiar with the Festival Scores audition system.
Use the SCKMEA Invoice Generator to create your fee invoices. An invoice print-out must be included with each payment. Make checks payable to South Central KMEA.

SCKMEA Fee Policy
Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the SCKMEA Fee Policy.

SCKMEA Fee Policy
At the January 30, 2016 board meeting, the SCKMEA Executive Board voted to approve the following policy. Late entries for SCKMEA auditions for District Jazz Band, Band, and Orchestra will be assessed a $25 late fee for each entry.

All audition fees and participation fees for all SCKMEA honor groups (Elementary Choir, MS Band and Choir, HS Jazz Band, Band, Orchestra, Choir) must be paid by the day of the event. If fees are not paid on-time, the audition and participation fees will be doubled.

All audition, participation, and late fees must be paid by March 1. If fees remain unpaid after March 1, students from that school's program (band, choir, jazz or orchestra) will not be eligible to participate in SCKMEA District events the following school year.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email or call me. I will respond as soon as possible. Best wishes to you and your students!
