This new Festival opportunity seeks to welcome all students to submit recordings for adjudication by MMEA Festival Judges. For the Fall 2020 Solo & Ensemble Festival, there is no approved repertoire list, no instrument/vocal styling restrictions, and students and educators are encouraged to select repertoire that is representative of the student’s personal experiences and culture. 

Submissions may include a solo performance by an individual, virtual ensembles, or face-to-face small ensembles (no larger than 10 musicians, conducted in a safe manner: masked, distanced, and outdoors if wind instrument/vocal).

The goals of this festival are:

  • Elevate music and performances of music that represent the unique experiences and cultural diversity of our students.

  • Encourage selection of repertoire not currently on the state list.

  • Develop skills and musical growth for independent small groups and soloists emphasizing collaboration and musical critical thinking.

  • Encourage the inclusion of instruments not currently represented in standard choral and instrumental ensembles.

  • Provide feedback from knowledgeable adjudicators on students’ performance and technical skills.

The 2020 Fall Solo & Ensemble Festival process will be virtual. More information about auditions, submissions, forms and deadlines can be found on the website: https://www.mmea-maryland.org/fall-2020-solo-ensemble-festival
