You won't want to miss the Fall Meeting! We'll cover pertinent information and provide a sight-singing adjudication training session

Eligibility
Auditions are open to students in grades 9-12. Since the ECKMEA High School Choirs and the ECKMEA Middle Level Choir include 9th graders, it is up to the director's professional discretion to decide which of these opportunities is best for his/her 9th graders as individuals. 9th grade students are allowed to register/participate in only one ECKMEA District Honor Choir, either High School or Middle Level. Any student auditioning or submitted for more than one group will be disqualified from participation in either group at the district level.

Registration
Late choir entries are now accepted by the ECKMEA District & State KMEA according to the schedule below. Register audition entries in the KMEA Members site.
