2015-2016 Region II High School Band/Orchestra/Percussion
Attention teachers and students: A new statement on eligibility was put in place prior to the 2015-16 school year. Please read below to ensure that you as a sponsor or student meet the requirements. Specific questions should be sent to email@example.com for High School Band and Orchestra Auditions ONLY.
1. All sponsoring teachers must be music educators and members of NAfME.
2. Students in a school with a music program must be sponsored by the teacher of that student’s primary ensemble*. If no primary ensemble for that student exists (i.e. no string ensemble for string student auditioning for orchestra), it is up to the discretion of another music teacher in that school to sponsor the student.
3. Students in schools without a music educator may be sponsored by a private music teacher as long as the teacher is a NAfME member and agrees to attend the auditions in their entirety. The status of the school’s music program may be verified by the CJMEA Executive Board. All decisions on eligibility in this category are under the discretion of CJMEA.
4. Students in schools without a music teacher should first seek sponsorship from their hometown school. If the hometown school is unable to sponsor, the students may alternatively seek sponsorship from their private teacher.
5. Sponsorship is defined as: signing the forms, acquiring appropriate signatures, conforming the student's musical ability, the student's standing in the program, and attending the auditions in their entirety.
6. All decisions on eligibility are under the discretion of the CJMEA Executive Board.
