Music In Our Schools Month

2020 Music in Our Schools Month Schedule

Music in Our Schools Month (MIOSM) is an opportunity for the music educators of Pennsylvania to display their performing ensembles in front of many of the legislators in PA who make the decisions which directly affect our educational lives. Each weekday during March PMEA is allowed to schedule an ensemble in both the Main Rotunda and the East Wing to perform for an hour from Noon – 1 p.m. Groups can vary in size from large ensembles to quartets. You, the director, determine what type of group you wish to bring.

Questions should be directed to MIOSM Chair Chuck Neidhardt.

If anyone would like to submit any videos or pictures during Music In Our Schools Month, please send all media to


Dear MIOSM Directors,
   Due to the current situation regarding the Covid-19 virus, the Pennsylvania State Capital management has decided to cancel all non-essential events and visitations. .  Unfortunately this means that all MIOSM concerts, beginning tomorrow, March 13, must be cancelled.  This is not a postponement, but a full cancellation.  
   Because of this, I will give priority to all of you next year if you decide to apply again. 
   Meanwhile I wish you all the best for the remainder of the school year and hope that you, your students and your families stay healthy.  We are in uncharted territory here and we must make decisions on the side of caution.
Thank you and take care.
Chuck Neidhardt
