PMEA District 1 is pleased to announce that beginning with the 20016-17 school year, a new elementary string fest will be offered for students. Pass the word along to elementary strings teachers that this opportunity will be available in the spring of 2017 (awaiting date confirmation) at Quaker Valley. Thanks in advance to Chris Burgh for taking on the challenge of hosting this brand new fest event! Check the FESTIVALS tab for more information as the 2016-17 school year begins.
Festival and Audition information for the 2016-17 school year has been posted under the Festivals menu tab. The Spring/Summer issue of the D1 newsletter is also available for download under the Newsletter tab. As more details about festivals become solidified, they will be posted throughout the summer.
Check back to this site after Memorial Day weekend for updated information relating to auditions and festivals for the 2016-17 school year. The newest issue of the D1 newsletter will also be posted at this time.
The Region 1 bus will only have 2 stops, Monroeville and North Huntingdon. The price will be $55.00 a seat and checks need to be made to Norwin Express.
Also, if there are students participating in the “PMEA Future Music Educators”, they could purchase a ticket on the bus as well. They will be dropped off at the Lodge. We already have 19 signed up even before the announcement has gone out.
Exact times and stop locations will be available after they email to reserve a spot. Contact Kimberly Glover with questions at email@example.com.
