New to the OMEA list for Orchestra Wednesday, August 07, 2013

Attention:  Ohio School Orchestra Directors – and beyond!  An Ohio Adjudication Committee recently met at Stanton’s Sheet Music to select new titles for the Ohio Full and String Orchestra Large Group Adjudication Lists.

All of the committee members, being current or former school orchestra directors themselves, brought a wealth of experience and expertise to the meeting and selected a great new bunch of pieces for the 2013-2014 school year.

Not only can Ohio directors benefit from the new pieces selected, directors from all over the country can rest assured that these pieces would be good additions to any school orchestra library, since they were chosen by fellow teachers who know what life is like in the “trenches.”

Notice that not every level has new entries.  Also you will see that some pieces are on both lower level high school and upper level junior high/middle school lists since there is some natural overlap between the two.  Finally, be aware that each class allows a small spread of grade levels since the grading process is rather subjective and varies slightly from publisher to publisher.

Here are the New 2013-2014 Additions to the Ohio High School and Junior High/Middle School Full and String Orchestra Adjudication Lists:
