The Ohio Music Education Association competition is on March 7. Not only are Select and Bella choirs going to the competition, but this year so is Aviator Chorale.

During the OMEAs, the choirs will sing pieces they have been rehearsing, along with sight reading music for judges. Judges rate musicians from one to five, with one being the best.

Sycamore choirs have been preparing for the competition by practicing sight reading pieces in their class range and above their class range. They practice as they will have to perform during the competition.

C is the easiest class range. The music is significantly easier than class AA, which is the most difficult to perform and sight read.

The OMEAs are open to instrumental musicians, singers, groups, and solo performers.
