If this was a normal year we would be holding a general membership meeting at the Junior Festival. It’s important that we meet for a few reasons, and I hope all Senior and Junior directors will attend. Please look for the Zoom link and join us on March 16th at 6 pm.
Here’s what we need to talk about:
1. The position of Chair Elect is currently vacant. We will entertain nominations or self nominations for anyone interested.
2. Review of the Senior Festival. Recordings release!
3. Review of the Junior Festival.
4. Announcements of openings on the state board and a plea for Southeastern District members to become involved and represented.
5. An update on the melding of district and state audition procedures and rubrics.
6. A report from our Auditions Coordinator and Treasurer.
7. Open positions for managers and assistant managers for ’21 – ’22.
8. Sharing of personal and professional concerns and victories over the last year.
9. RNS Shattuck Scholarship news.
10. New and old business.
Please join us!

While the BSO isn’t able to hold their annual Youth Concert in person this year, they have done a virtual performance! This year’s theme is “I really thought I couldn’t: a musical look at self doubt”. Check out the supplementary materials curated by many MMEA members as well as pricing information about the concert itself. Concert will be available starting March 5 through April 30.
For all accepted Junior Festival Students, please consider participating in our T-Shirt design contest. All accepted students will receive a T-shirt as part of their participation in the festival. More information can be found here:
