HOOSIER AUDITIONS CANCELLED due to COVID-19 Outbreak

Due to several campus closures leading to an increasing number of audition cancellations across the state, all district auditions are hereby cancelled. The State Competition scheduled for May 9th is also cancelled.

We understand that these cancellations will no doubt result in disappointments and inconveniences for everyone.  However, recommendations and guidelines published by the Indiana State Department of Health strongly encourages social distancing, and avoidance of all forms of non-essential travel.  Your safety and well-being is our top priority, and we hope you will give us some grace for the difficult decision we have had to make.

I wanted to thank you for continuing to make Hoosier Auditions such an exciting and enriching musical experience year after year.  We look forward to hearing your beautiful performances next year.
