The 2021 KASTA State-Wide Middle Level Orchestra will be offered in a different format this year. We will proceed with the paper auditions as usual, HOWEVER, there will be no rehearsals or concert in Hutchinson this spring. There will be no registration fee for this year only.
While we are all disappointed at the number of opportunities our students are missing, it is still encouraging for our students to be selected for any statewide event! The personnel will be announced as usual. A program will be prepared and sent to each director by e-mail so that it can be printed and given to the students. In addition the page will also be published on the KASTA State Wide Middle Level Orchestra page on our website.
Even if your school has not participated in the past, please consider sending applications for the 2021 Middle Level Orchestra!
Next year we will return to the in-person format in April 2022 with Mr. Bruce Boyd as our clinician. This event was the idea of Mr. Boyd during his term as President of American String Teacher’s Association Kansas Chapter in 1987!
Please note that being selected to the 2021 virtual event will not qualify any student for the 2022 Middle Level Orchestra.
TEACHERS should send paper applications for the 2021 KASTA Middle Level (Paper) Orchestra to Michael Harbaugh at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 5, 2021.
