High school entries that receive an overall Superior rating at their District MPA qualify to enter State MPA.
At State MPA, students are evaluated by a highly select panel of adjudicators at a state-level adjudication.
Before each State event, a bulletin will be posted with instructions specifically for that regional event.
State MPA General Information
MPAs are regulated by the information in the annual MPA Omnibus, found under the FVA Governing Documents. Directors are responsible for knowing and interpreting regulations to their students. The 2020–21 MPA Omnibus (not available yet) contains detailed information about all FVA MPA events.
Applications are due TEN DAYS after your last district event using the online registration system found at MPA Online. Payment is NOT due at the same time. Our executive director, Mark Scott, can be flexible on the timing of your payment as long as you communicate with him. Reach Mark at firstname.lastname@example.org.

FSMA provides State and District Choral MPA results at floridaschoolmusic.org
Choirs of Distinction
High School Choirs of Distinction are those that earned straight superiors at State MPA. Beyond this, at least two of the three adjudicators must select the chorus for performance honors.
