There is a misprint in the new edition of the Wohfahrt Foundation Studies for the Viola, Book 1. This affects the first viola etude for the 7-8 All-State audition, etude No. 20.

PLEASE NOTE: Traditional, Home and Virtual School students MUST be enrolled in their local public or private school orchestra or their home school music association. If no orchestra program exists at the student's local public or private school, the student MUST be enrolled in a music class at that school and be sponsored by that school music teacher who is a member of FBA, FVA, FOA and/or FMEA and who is at least an FOA Associate member. No student will be allowed to audition for any FOA All-State Orchestra unless the sponsoring teacher is a current Full or Associate member of FOA. (Executive Board Action, October 28, 2010)
