not-getting-p90x-resultsThe 2015 All-State Choir placements can now be viewed by FMEA members (directors) by logging in using their FMEA username/password at this link. Students and parents should communicate with their choral director to learn the results.

Many thanks to everyone who made the 2015 All-State audition cycle a success- the hard-working district chairs, the dedicated directors, the incredibly patient Vocal Quality adjudicators, and the best student musicians in the country!

2015 FVA Reading Chorus announced!

Congratulations to the students who have earned seats in the 2015 FVA All-State Reading Chorus! These students were the highest scoring in the Sight-Reading audition in each section. The Reading Choir is seated according to a SATB division. The online program sorts the students into SSAATTBB since that is how those students are registered. They will have a unique opportunity to read a large and varied packet of music, premiere the FVA Student Composition Contest winner, and sight-read a piece onstage in their concert on Friday night of the FMEA Convention in Tampa.

Directors- Please make sure that your District Chairman has an accurate and reliable e-mail for you and that no FVA e-mails are finding their way into your spam folder. All-State updates and information will be communicated via e-mail, this website, and on the FVA Facebook page.

Updated FVA Handbook

handbookThe FVA Handbook has been revised and is now available. The intent of the revision was to improve readability without altering the content. The handbook will no longer be updated on an yearly basis. Instead, it will be updated as needed. This is why you don’t see a school year (i.e. 2014-15) included as part of the title. We wish you all a great school year!

Special Note:

This year, directors will have until September 5 to renew their FVA/FMEA membership for All State eligibility. This change was made because September 1st is Labor Day.
