If you are the only director for all ensembles at your school, please fill out a separate form for each ensemble. If you need more than 15 nomination spots, please fill out a second form.
The strings festival is in the Southwest district this year. If you are the only director at your school, you should attend your normal festival for band and chorus, as well as the string festival, if they are not the same. Sorry for the inconvenience.
All directors - please nominate students by ability, not instrument or voice part. Your best musician should be first, followed by the second, third, etc. Please do not nominate all of your flutes or sopranos first, then clarinet/altos second.
Each eligible school submitting online applications by the deadline will receive representation of at least two students in each performing group, unless only two are nominated and they play the same instrument. In this case, schools are not guaranteed to have both students selected. Each school will also be represented by 5-10% of their program size when possible.
Choral directors - Please enter your students' suggested voice part in the Instrument/Voice Part field AND provide their actual range in the Vocal Range Field (eg. C3-C5)
