OMEA Large Group Adjudication
Friday, 3/9/2012 & Saturday 3/10/2012

OMEA Large Group Adjudicated Events (sometimes referred to as "contest") is a performance competition for band and choir in which each group performs three selections for a panel of three judges. Each group also sight reads a new piece of music for a fourth judge, although the sight reading takes place in a different room from the performance area and is closed to the public. Each judge provides written and recorded critiques of the performance, and then issues a rating on a scale of I to V, with "I" being the highest rating. The ratings from all four judges are brought together to form one composite rating. (i.e. I, II, I, I = composite I) Any ensemble receiving the composite rating of "I" is eligible for state adjudicated events on April 27th or 28th. At state AE, each group would then need to replace one of their selections with a new piece, and the entire process is repeated with much more strict adjudication.

In OMEA Adjudicated Events, each ensemble is evaluated on their own performance rather than being compared to other groups. This is not a "first place," "second place" type event, and it is not possible to "win" the competition. Any group could advance to state and receive a "I" rating there, depending on the level of their performance and skills.

The event is free and open to the public. Use of electronic devices or recording is strictly prohibited!
