- Accessing the honor group application site requires an OpusEvent account. Your NAfME membership must be current, and you must link your NAfME membership within your profile after logging in to Opus. If you are new to Opus or have forgotten your login credentials, click here.
- Group Eligibility Clarification Alert: To accommodate students in school districts that have moved to alternating semester classes, preventing yearlong participation, students will be considered eligible to audition if they are enrolled in the appropriate performing class at their school, when it is offered this school year.
2021 High School Honor Groups
The application and audition window is now open. All applications and live video auditions are submitted electronically by following the five steps below. The deadline to submit online high school applications and auditions is Saturday 12/5, 11:59 PM.
Application Fee: $20 each, non-refundable.
- All submissions must be video this year, recorded live, direct to Opus using a laptop or desktop computer.
- Given that some areas are limited to remote instruction/learning, you have the ability to email a link to your students so that they can submit audition video tracks from their home.
- Percussion Applicants: Due to remote learning required in some areas we understand that some percussionists may not have access to the full array of required instruments. If you are interested in applying but cannot access one or more instrument types, you are welcome to audition on those that you can and leave other tracks blank.
Take the following four steps to complete the application/audition process.
- Print the Application Worksheet. This is the information you need from students to build their applications.
