One of OMEA’s goals is to increase the opportunities for students from smaller schools to participate in an All-State experience. To achieve this, we have raised the number of available seats in the Symphonic band to 150, and adopted the All-Northwest small schools audition materials for those students from 1A-4A schools. 5A-6A students will be selected to fill out the band after all of the small school students who met the minimum audition scores are accepted into the Symphonic Band.
Teachers and students may not electronically or otherwise enhance any recordings. By submitting the audition materials online, the director attests that these conditions were met and agrees to adhere to all deadlines set by OMEA and understands that all deadlines are final.
