Submit your digital audition



Students will be asked to provide their director's e-mail address. Acceptd will then e-mail the director to verify the student's eligibility. Students must be a member in good standing of their corresponding school ensemble, and the student must be registered more than half-time at the school. The student may qualify for an "Offical Exemption," if their main source of education does not offer an ensemble for the student's musical discipline.

AUDITION PROCEDURE: Auditions for the All-State Jazz Band will be submitted via video online with "Acceptd" (Coming Soon). Accepted will collect student information including student name, address, etc. accompanied by a video audition which students will upload and submit. Students will use their own video device to record their audition and will then upload the video to the Acceptd website. Acceptd will walk the student through the audition upload and application process. There is tech support, if needed. Acceptd will accept any video file type and size. It is suggested that you do this several days ahead of the Nov. 18th deadline in case you run into technical difficulties.
