Audition Information

Thank you for your interest in our 2019 FMEA All-State Orff Ensemble!

Please read the following for success with your student audition.

We want your participation in this process to be successful. The downloadable packet has critical information to help you conduct your auditions with ease and validity. You must take time to READ with comprehension what is required. It is strongly suggested to read through the entire packet before making the decision to audition
students. You must follow all procedures, which will require preparation on your part. If you have questions, please contact either your FEMEA District Chair or the All-State Orff Coordinator, Holly Mullenix.

NEW: The FMEA Districts have been realigned. Please check the FEMEA Executive Board Contact Information page, which is on page 3 of the packet, for more details!

Be sure you:

  • Meet the September 15th deadline for membership
  • Read the entire packet
  • Understand about all required fees, checks and deadlines
  • Secure an Orff-style alto xylophone
  • Follow the audition script verbatim (pp. 8-10)
  • Record video audition using .mov or .mp4 format
  • Understand the Disqualification and Score Adjustments on page 6
  • Upload your recording(s) by the September 21st deadline
  • Select ensemble preference, if auditioning for both All-State ensembles
  • Contact your District Chair or Holly Mullenix with questions using contact info on page 3

If you have questions, you may contact either your District Chair or me. I look forward to working with you and creating a memorable All-State Orff experience with our
conductors, Cyndee Giebler and Michelle Przybylowski.

Our goal is to have the results posted before 5:00 pm on Tuesday, October 9, 2018.
