In 2024, we ventured up to our Northwest Corner to the Erie Bayfront Convention Center. We featured innovative ideas, performances, speakers, and sessions that brought new tides to music classrooms. We let music of the water surround us and bring us together to experience “Making Waves” in music education through the conference experience. 

Session handouts from the conference are all added as links within the session descriptions in the Whova app.
