All-Region/All-State Auditions

The window for online submissions for All-Region is soon approaching. This year due to COVID restrictions, all auditions will be submitted online through the Music First online application. Directors will be submitting and verifying student names and audition instrument this week in class.

We will be going over the process thoroughly in class this week, so everyone is familiar with the new submission details.

The process for submission is as follows:

  • Students will be given online access to upload their submissions from Saturday, November 7th beginning at 10:00am through Wednesday, November 11th at 11:59pm. The online application adopted by TMEA is Music First. Students will be able to change their submissions during the open window time; however, their submissions will be locked in after 11:59pm on November 11th. NO EXCEPTIONS.
  • Directors will verify all submitted performances once the submission window has closed.
  • The judging process will occur through the weekend of November 14th and results should be made available the next week (week of November 16th).
  • Phase 1 Cuts will be distributed through the Music First application during the student upload video time period.
  • Recordings cannot be "banked" to pick the best recording when listening side-by-side. However, students have an unlimited number of submission opportunities through the open submission window (we will discuss more about this in class this week).
  • Students MUST use either the online web based version of Music First or through an iPhone or iPad. If using the web based program, students must use Chrome to access. If using an iOS device, students MUST download the free Music First application on their iOS device (version 1.42).

Phase 1 instruments that will be submitting beginning November 7th through the 11th: Flute, Bb Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba & Percussion

Phase 2 instruments that will NOT submit this week but wait until Phase 2 auditions beginning December 5th through the 9th: Piccolo, Oboe, English Horn, Eb Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Contra Bass Clarinet, Bassoon, Contra Bassoon, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone & Bass Trombone.

Freshman All-Region will be held during the Phase 2 submissions on December 5-9.
