Virtual Pre-UIL Evaluation

Pre-UIL virtual evaluations offer school bands, choirs, and orchestras with targeted written and recorded comments to aid in UIL preparation.

These non-competitive “get ready” events are designed to inform directors and motivate students as they strive for excellence on the contest stage.

Three expert evaluators provide detailed written and recorded real-time comments about the performance.

A complete list of instrumental and choral evaluators can be found at the bottom of this page.

Music Selection:

Two or three selections are performed from the group’s UIL repertoire (maximum 20 minutes for choirs and 30 minutes for bands and orchestras). In keeping with the educational nature of the event, it is acceptable to perform portions of a longer work. Choirs may perform on solfege or neutral syllables according to each choir’s stage of development in perfecting the repertoire. Each piece may be performed in its entirety at the discretion of the director.


Three highly skilled evaluators will provide detailed, written, and recorded real-time comments designed to facilitate the continuing preparations for a satisfying and successful UIL experience.


Three sets of original scores with measures numbered are to be mailed directly to each evaluator for arrival on/before the same day the video is submitted to American Classic. The evaluator will return the scores at the conclusion of the evaluation.


Results will be sent within eight business days after receipt of registration, registration fee, and video plus receipt of the scores by each evaluator.  Failure to send scores to the evaluators in a timely manner may result in comments being made without the benefit of reference to the written score.


A video recording with good sound quality will need to be submitted via Dropbox (or similar).

Dress for Video:

Formal or informal concert attire is preferred but not required.

Cost Per Performing Group:

$100 non-refundable registration fee + $95 = $195 total fee per group (no per-student fees)



Q: Who will see these video recordings?

A: Only the adjudicators assigned to your group will have access to the video recording.
