All County Festival

OCMEA's Elementary All County Festival is held in late March or early April over the course of two days, Friday evening and Saturday. The festival features student musicians in grades 5 and 6 from throughout the county. At the festival, students work with a guest conductor to prepare three to four pieces. The festival culminates with a concert performance for the public which benefits the OCMEA Scholarship fund. A traditional Elementary All County Festival features the following ensembles:

  • String Orchestra

  • Mixed Chorus

  • Concert Band

Interested students are nominated by their teacher and reviewed by a committee where they are selected for each ensemble.
