Solo & Ensemble Assessment
- State solo and ensemble assessment is available to high school solo and ensemble events that qualify. Date for 2016 is May 21, 2016.
- This year, the solo and ensemble score sheets have a place at the bottom for judges to indicate whether full instrumentation (incl. piano) was employed. There is also a place to put the title and composer.
- The judge need only fill in that part at the bottom of the sheet if the event is a high school event, and if a Distinguished rating is being awarded.
- The runner should check for signature and rating, and if the event is a high school event and if the rating is Distinguished, the runner should also see if the judge filled out the bottom part. Ideally, an incomplete sheet should not leave the room.
- A high school level performance qualifies for state solo and ensemble assessment if
-a Distinguished rating is awarded
-the instrumentation is complete, no substitutions, and a piano is used if called for
-the selection is on the appropriate selective list (any piece on the string list, UIL grade 1 or 2 for voices, UIL grade 1 or 2 for wind and percussion)
- Directors wishing to enroll a qualified solo or ensemble in the state assessment should send a copy of the student's assessment form to the KMEA office with payment for the state event. The state office will check the appropriate list to ensure the selection can be found on the list.
