Audition Recordings
Auditions will be submitted online using Festival Scores. Teachers may create their Director account and update their Director and Student profiles now.

The NW District will again be using Festival Scores for submitting audition recordings. It is important that audition recordings are uploaded by the deadline. Late entries cannot be accepted.

Dates & Deadlines
TBA - Festival Scores will open for uploads
TBA, 11:59:59 PM (Central Time) - Deadline to upload HS Band auditions
Dec. 12 - NWKMEA Mini-Convention at FHSU

Please take note that the deadline is Central Time Zone. Also, late uploads are not possible. When the deadline has passed, the Festival Scores system will close the upload window.

Music folders will be handed out in November at the Mini-Convention in Hays. Please be sure you or a representative from your school is available to pick up that folder. This will save time and money.

Thank you for doing what you do each and everyday in and out of the classroom. As music educators, we know what we do makes a difference and that our students need our encouragement to keep playing and keep improving. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
