2019 Nominee List

2019 Alternate Auditions

2019 ECKMEA District Audition and NAfME Conflict Policy
Students who participated in the February 2019 Kansas All-State Ensembles qualify to audition for the 2019 NAfME National Honor Ensembles. (Being a member of our Kansas All-State Choir, Band, Jazz Band or Orchestra is required for a student to audition for the NAfME ensembles.) If selected, these students will be attending the NAfME conference from November 7-9, 2019. The East Central District is holding District Auditions at Olathe East on Saturday, November 9, 2019. In order to support the students who are selected for the 2019 NAfME ensembles, we will offer an alternative audition date with specific procedures in place to allow those students to audition for the 2019-20 ECKMEA District Honor Groups. Membership in the State instrumental ensembles will still be determined at the Live Auditions in January. No other exceptions will be made for any other reason, as has been our policy in the past.
