CONNECTICUT MUSIC EDUCATORS ASSOCIATION

Southern Region High School Festival

2020-21 Audition Information

Auditions for the 2020-21 school year will be held virtually only  through the new CTFest Audition platform which has an opening date for teacher registration of October 15.

The school association fee must be paid, school association form received and individual teacher memberships current in order to register students for auditions.

There will be no in-person festivals this year, however festival ensembles will still be selected through this audition and teachers will be notified of their students selection to the festival’s “paper ensemble”. As it is during a normal year, the HS students who are selected for their region festival “paper”ensemble will then be eligible to audition at the All-State level.

Registration Closes: November 11, 2020 **   Last Day to upload videos: November 21, 2020

**Late registrations will not be accepted under any circumstance. Audition registration closes Nov 11, but teachers may continue to upload videos past that date for registered students until Nov 21.

Audition Fee: $15 (Due 11/20/20)
