Audition Cuts
Audition cuts will be made available the week of the November auditions.

Audition Repertoire & Procedures
The All-State audition repertoire list is on the KMEA website. For auditions, students must use originals for all audition pieces.
  • Students will enter their designated room with original copies to sing for a panel of judges
  • Students should not speak when they enter
  • A director will start the audition track and will conduct your student in order to help the appropriate visual cues for entrances, cut-offs, and phrasing.
  • Upon completion of the audition cut, students should pick up their originals and leave the room without speaking.
Director's Responsibilities
After you register your students we will send out an email with more details about the day of auditions. DIRECTORS MUST BE AVAILABLE TO JUDGE, DIRECT or TABULATE FROM 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM THE DAY OF AUDITIONS. If you cannot be there or are not available for the ENTIRE day, you must send a willing and able director/sponsor in your absence or your school will be assessed a fine from SCKMEA. We need all hands on deck to make this huge event work smoothly! If you have specific requests regarding audition times, please email them to me and I will attempt to honor all requests. Also, if you teach both vocal and instrumental music, please let me know if you have instrumental judging duties as soon as you can.
