Regarding return to large group festivals...


Dear Board, Site Hosts, and Directors, 


We hope this information finds you well and that you and your families are safe during these difficult times. We all look forward to being out and about, and engaging our students again, hopefully sooner rather than later. CMEA Central Section is working diligently to plan for the potential of hosting festivals in the future. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through this process.


In an effort to minimize paperwork for all of us, the Central Section CMEA has decided to forward all 2020 festival fees in to the next festival season. If you desire to have a refund of your 2020 Large Group festival fees, please complete this form and our Treasurer and Festival Coordinator will work with you to issue a refund check.

Thank you for all that you do for kids and be well!

2021 Virtual 

Solo & Ensemble Festival


CMEA Central Section is excited to offer a Virtual Solo & Ensemble festival this spring!


Our goal is to provide performance opportunities for young musicians in our community and encourage educators to incorporate solo repertoire and performance into their curriculum, using this festival as another tool for assessment. Student performances will be evaluated by the Central Section’s top adjudicators using the Central Section Solo and Ensemble performance rubric. Registration will be held March 15th - April 16th. The virtual festival will take place April 19th - April 30th.
