2020-21 SEKMEA High School Honor Groups to use Recorded Auditions
SEKMEA 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.
IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR 2020-21
  • "Official" registration of SEKMEA HS Choir auditions is located in the KMEA Members website as that is the registration site for KMEA All-State Choirs. This is unchanged from prior years.
  • SEKMEA HS Choir will use an online recorded audition process for 2020-21 using the Festival Scores website.
  • The use of Festival Scores is strictly as a replacement for in-person auditions and judging, originally scheduled for Nov. 7, 2020.
  • Festival Scores will not serve as the official registration for SEKMEA HS Choir.
  • Audition uploads will be open for directors Oct. 18 - Nov. 4. Online remote judging will take place Nov. 5-12. The earliest possible date for roster publication will be Nov. 14.
  • Late uploads of auditions is not possible due to the timeline of events within the audition and judging process.
  • All judging will be held remotely using Festival Scores.
  • Students named to the SEKMEA HS Choir will be eligible to be named to the KMEA All-State Choirs.
