Results

Audition results for your students who auditioned will be available in early November in your MPA Online Account. Login to MPA Online, go to your All-State Auditions event, and click "Audition Results."

Please talk to your students individually about the results.  We want students find out if they were or were not selected from their directors, not through calls, texts or social media. It is for this reason, the full lists will not be published until 1 week after your results are available in MPA Online.
