Update from UIL about Music Contests
Dear UIL Music Stakeholders:
As we continue to monitor the rapidly changing status of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and how it is impacting students and their activities we have the following recommendations and updates regarding the remaining UIL music events and competitions for the 2019-2020 school year. The decision making process for region level events should be led by each music region executive committee, as facilitated by the music region executive secretary and in consultation with the UIL state office.
All UIL music events scheduled between March 16th and 29th are to be suspended. Rehearsals and practices during the time of suspension may be held with approval from the school district. Beginning on March 30th events may resume with the considerations that follow. Any changes to these dates will be communicated as they become available.
Concert and Sight-Reading Evaluations – Regional Sites throughout the State: UIL recommends that these affected events be rescheduled to a date that would best suit the schools involved. Note, though, that due to advancement implications the rescheduling of any affected athletic and academic events will take precedence over the rescheduling of these music events. Therefore, it might be best to wait to reschedule these events until any affected athletic and academic events have been rescheduled. If the music region leadership determines that rescheduling is not feasible, these affected events may be cancelled, as there are no advancement implications for music concert and sight-reading evaluation events.
State Wind Ensemble Festival – May 9, 2020 at the Butler School of Music at UT Austin: CANCELLED.
State Solo and Ensemble Contest – May 30 and June 1 at four campuses in the Pflugerville ISD: NO STATUS CHANGE at this time. Registration opens on April 1 and could be delayed. Information about this contest and any updates will be posted at https://www.uiltexas.org/music/tssec.
Thank you all for your patience as we all work together to navigate these challenging circumstances, while keeping our participants safe.
