Elementary Honors Festival
CMEA members may nominate their students who are in grades 4-6 for participation in one of three ensembles that make up the Elementary Honors Festival which is held at the annual In-Service Conference.
Selected students and their teachers attend a full day festival which includes rehearsal and performance under regionally and nationally recognized conductors, sectionals, lunch with many new fellow musicians, a mini performance by a visiting group related to their ensemble and culminates with a concert to share all that they have put together that day. This is an excellent first festival experience to honor and challenge the motivated, hard working students in your ensembles that is sure to get them excited for future festivals such as regional festivals and beyond!
