4.) BCMEA Honour Ensembles
The BC Music Educators Association will again be hosting our provincial Honour Bands, Choirs, and Jazz Ensembles (Performances in October 2014). Students can audition to perform with top high-school music students from around the province. The experience is REALLY rewarding as students work with top conductors from all over North America, rehearsing and learning high-level musical repertoire. I highly encourage students to check this opportunity out! Visit http://bctf.ca/bcmea/HonEns2014.html for more information on applying and auditioning. Auditions must be received by the ensemble coordinators by April 11, 2014.
