Students in 7th and 8th grade band are eligible to audition for the Connecticut Music Educators Association (CMEA) Northern Region Middle School Festival! Each year, CMEA assembles the best middle school musicians from across the state into one band for a two day festival which culminates in a concert for friends and family. This is a great opportunity for any student who is proficient on their instrument. This is an auditioned ensemble; students will prepare a piece, a selection of scales, and perform a short sight reading excerpt for the audition. Auditions take place on January 6th at King Phillip Middle School in West Hartford. Students must register for an audition by November 29. The festival itself is March 23rd and 24th. Please see the attached documents and permission slip for details.
