2014-2015 All-State Audition Requirements

Below are the audition requirements for the 2014-2015 All-State Bands, which will audition in September 2014 and perform in January 2015.

Please be aware that the books used for the all-state audition exercises may have multiple editions.  There may be some discrepancies with page numbers between editions, so please be sure to go by the exercise/etude number. 

Questions should be directed to your band director only. 

Students interested in auditioning should register through their band director. Band directors must be current members of FBA and FMEA on September 1, 2014, and then register their students on-line through the MPA-Online system.
