2021 Virtual District Solo and Ensemble Contests

OMEA 2021 Virtual District Solo and Ensemble Contests


Congratulations to all participants of the 2021 OMEA Solo/Ensemble Festival.  All Directors and participants have been emailed a link to your adjudication form for your performance from noreply@opusevent. 


To access your form, click the link in that email, then enter your music teacher’s last name and the primary email address that you used to register for the festival. The form you will see will have your written comments, as well as your scores (if you asked to be scored).  If the adjudicator was able to record video feedback for your performance, you will be able to see that video by clicking the play button in the top center of the form.  You can also re-watch your performance video in the upper left corner of the form.



- You cannot view this adjudication form on a phone or tablet – Only on an actual computer. 

- Browsers: While the form may work in Firefox, it works best in the latest version of Google Chrome. The form will not display or function correctly in Safari and most other browsers.


For those participants that wished to be considered for the State Solo or State Chamber Ensemble Contest, the contest results for each OMEA district are posted below.  You will receive information about how to proceed with registration for the state contests in the next few days from OSAA and OMEA.


1st Place and 2nd Place finishers at the district level are automatic qualifiers for the OSAA State Solo and OMEA State Chamber Ensemble Contest.  For further information about placement at the State events, please see the State Solo Music Handbook on the OSAA website, and the State Chamber Ensemble Handbook on the OMEA website.  OSAA and OMEA will work to include as many alternates as possible in the state contests.  Alternates will be notified about acceptance to the state contests.


If you wish to see what your contest rating would be (I, II, III), the scoring chart for these ratings is on the top of the adjudication form.


The OMEA State Chamber Ensemble Contest Chair is Gary Riler.  The OSAA State Solo Contest Chair is Nathan Irby from OMEA, along with Kyle Stanfield from OSAA.  If you have questions about these events, please contact these chairs.
