Each year, students throughout the state of Kansas have the opportunity to audition to perform at District Festivals and at the KMEA In-Service Workshop. The audition process begins at their own school, progresses through their KMEA District Organization and culminates with selection to the All-State ensembles. Student musicians have the opportunity to audition to perform in choirs, concert bands, jazz bands and orchestras at both the district and state levels. For more information about the audition process within your district, please visit your District website.

For a student to participate in a KMEA All-State ensemble, the sponsoring teacher must be a member of KMEA.
