For more than 30 years, Hastings College has helped young musicians prepare for the Nebraska All-State Music Auditions by providing live, on-campus instruction and guidance to the audition repertoire. Our All-State Prep Week is Tuesday, September 7 through Saturday, September 11, 2021. 

For no cost, you can sign up for individual coaching sessions with our esteemed faculty to help prepare for your digital auditions for the Nebraska Music Education Association’s all-state honor ensembles — including band, choir, jazz band and orchestra.

Instrumentalists can schedule in-person or online lessons during the week, and on September 11 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. choral musicians will come to Hastings College for a group choir experience. 

All State Prep Week is September 7-11, 2021.
