Texas State Solo-Ensemble Contest

Dates & Sites

The 2021 contest will be held VIRTUALLY.


Registration will be open for on-time entries from Thursday, April 1 through Thursday, April 15 at:  Account holders will sign in using their director login, then click on “TSSEC Enter Students” on the lower left side of the page and follow the instructions. Do not use Safari, as the system does not function correctly using this browser. We recommend using either Firefox or Google Chrome. 

Fees & Deadlines

Fees:  $20 per solo and $10 per ensemble member.  Instructions on how to pay fees will be on the invoice. All fees are due upon submitting entries and credits are not issued if entries are cancelled, even if done so prior to the entry deadline.  In addition, all school music programs will be required to pay a license fee when registering students for TSSEC.  This license fee is assessed by Dorian Business Systems for the maintenance of the online registration and scheduling system.  For example, a school's band, choir, and orchestra program will each pay the license fee.  Account holders will be able to print their invoice at any time.

Entry Deadline: Thursday, April 15.  Account holders will still be able to access the system between April 16 and April 30 to submit LATE entries; however, note that late fees will apply AND there will be no guarantee that any entry made after April 15 will be scheduled.

Late and Add-on Entry Deadline: Friday, April 30.  Entries made by a school's music program - band, choir, or orchestra - that did not submit any entries prior to April 16 are defined as late. Late entry fee: $20 per Event, which is in a addition to the on-time entry fees of $20 per solo and $10 per ensemble member.  Entries submitted by a school's music program - band, choir, or orchestra - that did submit some entries prior to April 16 are defined as add-ons. Add-on entry fee: $10 per event, which is in a addition to the on-time entry fees of $20 per solo and $10 per ensemble member. “Add-ons” should constitute no more than ten percent of the total number of entries for a band, choir, or orchestra program.  There is no guarantee that late entries or add-ons will be scheduled.

Cancelations (DNA’s), Ensemble Member Updates and Changes to Music Performed: Updates to this information can be made by the account holder in the system until performance recordings are submitted. 

Recording Submission Deadline: May 2021, on a day to be determined.
