Events & Deadlines

  • All deadlines are regarded as "in our hands on this date." SWKMEA does not use postmarks for any reason. You must submit payment if your student(s) participate in any SWKMEA Honor Group.
  • An audition fee must be paid for every student registered for a HS Choir audition regardless of whether or not the audition takes place and regardless of whether or not the student is accepted.
  • Reminder to directors - if your fees are not paid by March 1st, a $50 penalty will be applied to your school.
