Nominations for Future All-State Guest Conductors Being Accepted
PMEA is currently accepting nominations for future All-State conductors. Nominations should include a short bio and resume of the conductor with experience in conducting students of this age level and All-State caliber. Any PMEA member may nominate a potential All-State conductor but we ask that you have observed the conductor and include a short affirmation as to why he/she is being nominated. If you're interested in submitting a nomination, please complete the All-State Conductor Nomination Form by this Monday, July 15th.
