Audition Registration
Auditions must be registered in the KMEA Members site.

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.

Audition Process
Students will be assigned an audition time prior to audition day. On the day of auditions, each student must check in with the door monitor at his or her assigned room prior to the start of auditions to receive an audition number. Audition numbers must not be traded. Students who have not checked in by 10 AM will have their audition canceled. The judges will wait an appropriate amount of time for "no shows" at each room. All auditions will be blind. Audition materials are available on the SCKMEA website and correspond with the KMEA All-State Audition Materials. Results will be posted online the Monday following auditions.

Audition Time Requests
To the extent the schedule allows, accommodations can be made for students who need special consideration for their scheduled audition time. Directors must note all such requests when entering students online. Personal preferences for directors or students cannot be accommodated and should not be entered.

Director Participation in the Audition Process
Directors are responsible for relaying audition time and location information to their students. Directors must arrive no later than (time TBA) the day of the auditions. This will allow time for a brief meeting for all directors to discuss any further cuts being made to the audition materials and to ensure the auditions start on time. All directors who have students auditioning are required to assist with the audition process as needed (judging, tabulating, preparing music packets, etc.). There is a $100 penalty for any school that does not provide a qualified adjudicator or assistant. Any exceptions to this rule must be appealed to the SCKMEA President.

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!
