Please read the Policies and Procedures tab.
The documents contain vital information regarding maximum number of
entries per school, audition day procedures, and requirements.
You won't want to miss the Fall Meeting! We'll cover pertinent information and provide a

Please contact the chair if you have any questions.
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.
Late choir entries are accepted by the ECKMEA District & State KMEA according to the posted schedule.
