Results

Audition results will be available in early November, on the FMEA Members-only website. You must login with the username and password you chose when you renewed your FMEA & FBA Membership.

Please talk to your students individually about the results - do not post the full ensemble lists for all students to see.  We want students find out if they were or were not selected from their directors, not through calls, texts or social media.  Thank you for your cooperation with this!
