Conference Informal Colonnade Performances

As part of the celebration of the 75 anniversary of the Virginia Music Educators Association and our 40th Professional Development Conference, VMEA will be piloting performance opportunities for informal small ensembles at this year’s conference at The Homestead.  This will enable VMEA to provide more performance opportunities to school groups from across the Commonwealth, particularly for those schools who have found it cost prohibitive to perform at the conference.


1. Performances will take place in the Colonnade between the Great Hall and the Conference Center at The Homestead.
2. All performances will take place on Thursday or Friday.
3. Ensembles will be limited to 8 student performers.
4. The length of programs will be 30 minutes or less.
5. VMEA will provide chairs and music stands (for performers) if needed.
6. Any additional equipment will need to be provided by the selected performing groups.
7. Applications must be submitted by Friday, September 27, 2019.
8. Accepted Groups will be notified by Friday, October 4, 2019.
9. All applications must include mp3 recordings of the current group applying to perform at conference.
