Please be aware of some important OMEA rulings, which will affect this year's tryouts:

  • The 50% pass rule for First Round is in effect for sections of four or more. Flutes, clarinets, trumpets, French Horns, and trombones will not follow the 50% rule - depending on the number of students auditioning.

  • A student can audition for OMEA (not NCDA) on the day of the First Round tryouts with a completed emergency application, fees, and up-to-date membership of the director.

  • Only 21 flutes, 34 clarinets, 23 trumpets, 20 french horns, and 16 trombones can be sent on to the final round from any one district.
