All-State Orchestra Auditions

2021-2022 All-State Ensemble

Update: June 23, 2021

The NJMEA Board has decided that the November All-State Ensembles will be a virtual experience. Please see the attachments for information on the virtual audition process and updated deadlines. Please note that Winds and Percussion should use materials posted to the ‘Band Auditions’ tab, and strings should utilize the ‘Orchestra Auditions’ tab and associated links. Please contact our performance chairs with any questions or concerns. Please also note that no decision has been made regarding the February ensembles, and information will continue to come out as we monitor what becomes possible later in the year.
