State Music Performance Assessments

State MPA 2024

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.

Bulletins

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 2021–22 Omnibus contains detailed information about all FVA MPA events.

Application / Registration Process

Applications are completed using the online registration system found at MPA Online. After District MPA, entries eligible to register for State MPA will be indicated. Payment is NOT due at the same time. FVA executive director, Mike Dye, can be flexible on the timing of your payment as long as you communicate with him. Reach Mike at mike@fva.net.

Schedules will be posted approximately two weeks prior to each State MPA.
