Instrumental Auditions

For a student to participate in a KMEA All-State ensemble, the sponsoring teacher must be a regular active KMEA Member. NAfME Associate membership does not grant eligibility as it is not a Kansas membership. Each student participating in Instrumental Live Auditions must first be an performing member of their KMEA District Band, Jazz Ensemble, or Orchestra. Participation in a nominated district group does not provide eligibility for this event.

Auditions must be registered online in the KMEA Members site by the sponsoring teacher.
