Sight Reading Changes:

There will only be one four measure example.  Four points in each measure, 2 for rhythm and 2 for notes.  Partial Credit may be given.

Examples may be in major or minor but will only come from the following keys:  B flat Major, F Major, C Major, G Major or D Major and the five relative minor keys of those five keys.

A starting pitch will be given (not tonality).  The student will have 20 seconds to study silently or they may auditate if they would like.  After the 20 seconds is over, a second starting pitch will be given and they will begin.  The judge will only judge what they hear after the study period and the second pitch.

Examples from last year are now posted here:  http://www.ilmea.org/divisions/chorus/
