2022-2023 All State Auditions
Dear Music Educators, Caregivers, Students, and Fellow Marylanders,
Maryland Music Educators Association (MMEA) is pleased to present the 2022-2023 Maryland All State Audition Information.
Auditioning for All State is the culmination of a preparation process that has spanned a student’s entire school career. Through their participation in music performing ensembles and intentional development of their technical and expressive tools, students develop critical thinking, self-reflection, and problem-solving skills which will serve them in their future life pursuits, whether or not those pursuits are musical.
As the new school year begins, consider all of your students, and look for those who you perceive to have the qualities of an All State musician: excellence in musicianship, performance, practice, and self-discipline. Consider those students who would benefit not only through possible participation in an All State Ensemble, but who would benefit from the audition process. This is truly an opportunity for all students.
As a caregiver of a prospective All State musician, contact your student’s school music educator for more information on the process. It will be through this collaboration that your child will be successful.
Important Note - The All State audition materials as well as all of the policies and procedures are now available. The auditions will be live in-person auditions held in various locations in the state as well as a live-virtual audition option. Live in-person auditions are encouraged, however a student can request a live-virtual audition option. Please review the information on the All State Auditions page.
Before beginning to prepare for the auditions, please review the student eligibility, dates, and information for the Maryland All State Ensembles. In addition, reach out to your school ensemble music educator/director for collaboration in this process.
The MMEA Board has taken the results of the membership survey and feedback as we prepared for the 2022-2023 auditions. Please note, the All State nomination/registration process has been modified to meet the time frame and demands of the process. Please read all instructions carefully. Make note of the application fee, timelines, as well as the use of inclusive language in any communications to support the MMEA diversity, equity, and inclusion goals to create a safe and welcoming environment for all.
We wish you and students well in the new school year, and best wishes in the 2022-2023 MMEA All State Auditions.
