(Jazz audition materials are not changing.)

Updated information will be posted as soon as it is available. Thank you for your patience!

Each All-State Band audition will include:
  1. Play all scales in succession, in a single continuous take, at the articulation and tempo indicated. 
    • Percussion auditions do not have a scales component.
  2. Perform a solo selected by the teacher and student based on recommended difficulty level published by MMEA. The solo will be performed unaccompanied.  A maximum of 5 minutes may be submitted.
    • Percussion auditions choose one instrument for their solo.
  3. Perform the Band Etude posted on the MMEA website.

The 2018 Audition fee is $20, the deadline is March 15, 2018.
See the OpusEvent How-To Guide for information on submitting auditions.

MacPhail Center for Music has generously provided video tutorials for Winds, Brass and Percussion etudes.

All-State Camp information is available on the All-State Camps page.
