Individuals are advised that during the section rehearsals on Wednesday evening they may be selected at random to demonstrate appropriate preparation. Directors at each college must plan to conduct review rehearsals in January before the TMEA Convention. An organized region rehearsal may serve this purpose.
SECTION 2 - AUDITION/CERTIFICATION PROCESS
Each institution will be allowed to certify an octet (one student on a part). This octet shall include Soprano I and II, Alto I and II; Tenor I and II and Bass I and II. If an institution does not have a complete octet, then any additional singers will be certified as alternates at the time of the audition/certification process. The purpose of the audition/certification process is to certify that each student knows his or her part. It is not sufficient that an individual has attended a group rehearsal. Students must demonstrate knowledge of all the selected music. There must be three judges at each audition/certification site. If it is not possible for all three judges to be a TTCCDA choral director, the additional judges may be a music teacher from a college faculty or community.
