NAfME Eastern Division Conference Information

2023 Eastern Division Conference 

Connect, Create, Communicate! at the 58th annual NAfME Eastern Division In-Service Conference, April 13-16, hosted by the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) in Rochester, NY.
Recent history has changed the landscape of our educational system as well as society. As educators we continue to connect, create, and communicate with our students through music. The NAfME Eastern Division is calling for 60-minute conference sessions that explore how to connect, create, and communicate through and about music in new and innovative ways.
The window to submit a performing group application is also now open. Performing ensembles of all ages, experience levels, cultures, and genres, are encouraged to apply.
Deadline to submit both is Wednesday, June 15.
Information is not yet available regarding applying to a 2023 Eastern Division Honors Ensemble.
*Please note that all students currently in 10th & 11th grade who participated in a 2022 All-State ensemble are eligible to apply to the All-East Honors ensembles. All instrumentalists (with the exception of violists & cellists) will need to submit an equalizer etude audition. The window to submit will run from Wednesday, May 16 until Wednesday, June 1. The specific audition excerpts will be posted on the PMEA website as well as emailed to directors with eligible underclassmen students in early May.
