Important Notices

     Due to the inclement weather that has been forecast for Friday, January 19, 2024, as well as the county-wide closures that have occurred, on behalf of myself and the Orange County Music Educators’ Association Executive Board, we have unfortunately decided to postpone this weekend’s scheduled High School All-County Festival, and will be enacting our Snow Emergency Contingency Plan, which will move our High School All-County Festival to next weekend, which would be Friday, January 26 and Saturday, January 27, 2024.
     These dates were printed on the OCMEA Commitment Contracts that were completed, signed by parent’s and our colleagues, and submitted back in September.  We will hope to see everyone next week and to share all of the amazing talents of our honored High School All-County musicians then.
     In the meantime, please be safe and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
