  • Auditions for HS honor ensembles will be held online via a recorded process.
  • High School students named to a district instrumental ensemble will be eligible to audition for KMEA All-State Instrumental Ensembles.
  • High School choir students who score high enough will be named to the KMEA All-State Choirs in the normal fashion.
  • Details regarding honor ensemble souvenirs will be published at a later date.
  • SWKMEA District Mini-Conventions, scheduled for Nov. 7, Dec. 5, and Jan. 23 have been cancelled.
Directors must be members of NAfME-KMEA in order to register students for SWKMEA District Honor Ensembles.
Honor group fees will be assessed as a "Registration Fee" for all SWKMEA ensembles.
Payments not accompanied by a printed invoice will incur a $15 penalty.
