Wisconsin School Music Association: Virtual Solo Festival

              Register for District           

               Register for State             

How It Works

District Eligibility: Student must attend a WSMA member school
State Eligibility: Solo must have received a *1 rating at District Festival

  1. Parents (or students age 18+) register a student for district or state festival using CS Music’s Online Audition Tool.  
  2. Students perform their solo for a video recording device, upload the video to YouTube, and then add the YouTube link to their CS Music application found at www.csmusic.net/applications. For complete instructions, view our Preparation Procedures and Registration Procedures
  3. Students will be notified via email when their performance has been reviewed by judges. They will receive written feedback and a rating from the adjudicator within one week of video submission. 
  4. If students qualify for state festival through a virtual district-level performance, steps one through three repeat for a second state-level performance. 
  5. Schools, booster groups or parents may choose to purchase official WSMA awards to recognize eligible students (available only at WSMA Award Store).
