The KMTA Honors Auditions are proudly sponsored by Capitol Federal®
The Honors Auditions were created to allow any student to participate. Music students of any age level and experience are eligible to participate. Even though the event is a competition, the Honors Auditions are specifically designed to be a positive learning experience for all students who enter them.
Teachers first register their students for the District Auditions (click "Registration and District Schedules" on the right side); if you do not know your district, contact David Tauscher. The District Audition dates are listed on the "Registration" page. Students receiving a "one" rating at District can proceed to State.
All enrollments will be online this year. Payment will be by Paypal or you can write a check and mail it after you enroll your students online. Fees are $24 per solo entry and $30 per duet team. Chamber Music competition is $15 per student.
