Welcome to the OkMEA Treble Chorus and Mixed Chorus page!

OkMEA will be using Opus Event for online auditions and adjudication for the 2020-2021 school year. Check this page often for updates and tutorials as we set up the events for the Fall.


OkMEA has only one audition process for both the Mixed and Treble Choruses. Every interested student auditions for the Mixed Chorus. The committee will place singers after the final round.

Below is a link to the updated Rules and Regulations for the Choral Division. Wording changes (i.e. replacing CD with track, etc.) are notated in red. Items in purple are rule changes implemented by the OkMEA Executive Board. If you would like a copy of previous Chorus RPP to compare, please email the Choral VP.

Choral Business Meeting (January 2020)

The OkMEA Executive Board voted to allow choral students to audition on non-traditional voice parts (for example: a boy auditioning as an alto) as long as the student consistently sings that voice part in their school’s choral organization. If you have a student auditioning on a non-traditional voice part, you will need to complete the following steps:
  • Fill out a Non-Traditional Voice Part Registration Form for each student
  • Inform Lacy West, Mixed Chorus Chair, by email of the non-traditional voice part selection.
  • Scan your form and email to to Lacy West as an attachment or deliver it to your Quad Chair at the first round audition site.

Completed forms must be received before the student attempts the first round audition.
