2019-20 Alternate Auditions
2019 Northeast Kansas District Choir Audition Procedures for Students selected for National Ensembles
Student for will record the TWO audition pieces in their entirety and the four-measure
sight-singing excerpt (the procedures as they are administered at
district auditions will be followed). Students will have one opportunity, i.e.
"one take," on each of the audition pieces so as to limit the applicant's
chances of multiple takes on the audition pieces.
These recordings will be done at Blue Valley NORTH High School on
Monday, November 4, 2019, beginning at 7:00 PM
. This date and time are
also posted on the ECKMEA website and it has been communicated to all
ECKMEA choir directors via email.
The recordings created for National Ensemble members will be played for
the respective judges on the day of District Auditions (November 9, 2019) so
as to maintain consistency in judging. Recordings will be judged using the
same rubric as live auditions and will ONLY include the same excerpts that
will be played by the live audition students (i.e. the choir chair will edit the
student's performance so that ONLY the required materials are presented).
EVERY PRECAUTION WILL BE TAKEN TO ENSURE THE VALIDITY AND
FAIRNESS OF THE AUDITION PROCESS.
Questions about these procedures can be directed to the choir chairperson, Jon Duncan.
This recorded audition option is only offered to students selected to perform
in a NAfME National Ensemble due to the fact that KMEA and NAfME
are affiliated organizations. All other students will be required to attend live
