MTNA Performance Competitions

The MTNA Performance Competitions are national in scope. The competitions begin in autumn at the State level (quarterfinal) and progress to the five-state East Central Division (semi final) in January. Winners of the East Central Division compete at the National Finals, held concurrently with the National Conference in late March. There are no district competitions for the MTNA Performance Competitions.

These competitions are completely separate from the Hoosier Auditions.

All applications for MTNA competitions (performance and composition) must be submitted on the MTNA website.

For questions regarding MTNA Performance Competitions, please contact Beverley Simms,  Indiana MTNA Competitions Chair.
