Audition Information

Audition material is now available for the 2017-2018 auditions. You may begin working with your potential All-State Orff students before they leave for summer vacation. There are several documents to help you navigate the audition process so check them all out. New to the process? Great! I hope you will find the information useful and easy to follow.

How to do All-State Orff Ensemble 2018

Clinicians for the 2018 All-State Orff Ensemble will be BethAnn Hepburn and Roger Sams. More information will be posted shortly. 

If you have questions, you may contact either your District Chair, or me. I look forward to another successful All- State Orff performance.

Our goal is to have the results posted before 5:00 pm on Friday, October 13.

Sample Audition Videos

Orff audition recordings must be .mp4 video files no bigger than 854 x 480 resolution. If 854 x 480 is not an option, choose 540p or the lowest one possible. Here are some instructions for recording the auditions using a laptop with a webcam:

Macintosh Computers:

Windows Computers:

Phones or Tablets:

  • Hold your phone sideways. No vertical video!
  • Email the video to yourself or use a USB cable to transfer the videos to your computer. Import them into either Windows Live Movie Maker, VideoPad or Apple iMovie, and follow the instructions in the above documents for exporting to the correct file format.

To enter your students and upload their audition videos, login to the FMEA website and look under the "FEMEA" heading on the members-only home page. You must be a current FEMEA member for that section to appear. Video Demonstration
