ISMTA Competitions

Entry deadline for ISMTA Competitions is September 13, 2017

ISMTA Competition has been restructured effective immediately.  The 2-tier competition format has been eliminated, so there are no longer district auditions.  ISMTA Competitions has been changed to a single tier competition offered at 2 different locations, ISMTA Competition NORTH and ISMTA Competition SOUTH.  Each competition will run independently with separate chairs and winners.

Both ISMTA Competition NORTH and ISMTA Competition SOUTH will be held in mid-late October,  within 3 weeks of the annual ISMTA Conference.  All first place winners at each division will be invited to perform at the Winners Recital during the ISMTA Conference.

Students compete in the location associated with their teacher’s local chapter.  If a teacher does not belong to a local chapter, they may enter students in the location nearest to the teacher’s teaching residence or college/university.  The division between NORTH and SOUTH is roughly Highway Interstate 80.

ISMTA competition is open to any student who studies with a member of ISMTA or a teacher who has paid the one time non-member fee of $150.

Entry deadline for ISMTA Competitions is September 13, 2017
