The audition fees and registration cards must be postmarked by November 1, 2013 in order to be considered on time. After that date, the registration fee will rise from $15.00 to $20.00 per instrument per student. Absolutely no registrations or fees will be accepted if they are postmarked later than November 8, 2013. Students who have not pre-registered will not be permitted to audition. Audition dates are January 3, 2014 (Fairmont State University) and January 4, 2014 (Capital High School, Charleston).
Auditions will not be canceled due to bad weather. If you are unable to make your requested site because of weather conditions, you can be worked into the next days’ schedule as cancellations occur. If students are registered at Fairmont they will only be allowed to audition in Charleston due to weather conditions not schedule conflicts.
Please enclose the following information on a 3x5 (not 4x6) index card in the following manner: It is very important that you fill the card out correctly. Incorrect cards will be returned at your expense. Late returned cards will not be accepted. Cards should be in the landscape position, not vertical, even though that's how the following picture appears.
