Fest & Festival Information

A Statement of Principles Governing Participation in PMEA Fests and Festivals

*Please note: PMEA directors sponsoring students in PMEA festivals and/or fests must be FULL ACTIVE members of PMEA.  Retired members are not eligible to sponsor students in festivals, fests, and/or adjudication (music performance assessment) activities.

Greetings from the Student Performance Events Council! As winter moves to spring the high school director focus begins to lean more towards the upcoming Festival season. In an effort to streamline procedures across the state, the SPEC has been diligently working to consolidate Region/State Policies and has devised Checklists that must be used during the audition process at Region & State Festivals this year.

As the SPEC continues to strive to improve Performance Events, we look forward to any suggestions and input from PMEA members. If you would like for the SPEC to review or discuss an issue or suggestion at our summer meeting, please contact your District SPEC Fest and or SPEC Festival representative for more information on how to proceed.

Best wishes for a successful rest of your school year!

Lisa E. Hummel
