The following requirements were approved by the UMEA board and were implemented for the 2012 UMEA State Band Festival . Bands that qualify for and participate in the Utah State Band Festival must adhere to these requirements, including the selected performance literature:

1. A march must be performed from the "Utah Required March List" (see below). The list can be accessed on the UMEA web-site at A director may petition to perform a march not on the approved list by submitting the "Petition to add a Selection to the list" form (see below).

2. An additional piece must be performed from the "Utah Required Literature List" (see below). The list can be accessed on the UMEA web-site at A director may petition for approval to perform a selection not on the list by submitting the "Petition to add a Selection to the list" form see below).

3. A third selection may be performed that is of contrasting style and of the directors choosing (see "Guidelines," below for exceptions).


Bands should perform three selections of contrasting style. There is a possible exception if the director's second selection is of sufficient length to fill the performance time limit and includes multiple movements or complete sections of contrasting style that demonstrate sufficient musical substance. In this instance, both selections must be from the required list.

The band's entire performance, including set-up and exiting the stage, must not exceed 30 minutes.

Determination of a band's eligibility for the state festival will be made upon receipt of the official application and performance fee. Bands will be scheduled when their application and fee are received. Requests for specific time slots will be honored when possible, but directors must remain flexible, regarding scheduling.

Region chairs are encouraged to complete region band festivals no later than three weeks before the state festival begins. Failure to do so will affect the flexibility of state festival scheduling.

3 scores, with measures numbered, of each performed selection must be provided. Provided scores must adhere to all applicable copyright laws.

Directors may petition to add any selections to the list by submitting the "Petition to add a Selection to the list" form found on the UMEA web-site (see below).

Stars(*) indicate the number of times each selection appeared on lists that were combined.

Petitions for additions to the state required literature list are to be submitted to:
