May 5th and 6th, 2017 

Dear OMEA Middle School Band and Choir Directors:

The District IV Middle School Large Group Adjudicated Events will be held on May 5th and 6th, 2017 at Center Middle School.

All registration information must be sent to:

Christopher Chidsey, OMEA MSLGAE IV Band Chair
Center Middle School

Strongsville, Ohio 44136 
Phone (440) 268-5272


OMEA asks all directors to enter their ensemble applications through the web site:


These instructions have been provided from OMEA for entering your band or choir:
  1. The portal will open for registration 8 weeks prior to the event on Saturday, March 11th. 
  2. Log onto the member portal and choose Large Group from the Online Registration menu. Those who have been assigned to an out-of-­district or out-of-region site will need to go back online and complete the registration process. 
  3. Complete one form for each ensemble you are registering. Make sure to fill in all pertinent information including song titles, composers and performance order. You will also have the opportunity to make date and time requests.
  4. Print the check-out form for your administrator to sign and to mail to your chair with your payment of $135.00 for each ensemble (checks payable to OMEA District IV Treasurer). All Choirs will be scheduled early Friday. You will not receive your schedule until payment is received. Fees must be paid before the day of the event. 
  5. 4 weeks prior to the event (April 8th), registration will close and we will download the data and schedule all bands and choirs.

We are looking forward to May 5th and 6th! Please email me if you have questions. I will do my best to answer them or put you in touch with someone who can.
