CMEA Festival

Note new performance date

Saturday, April 29

Hosted by the California Music Educators Association and held at Fremont High in Sunnyvale, this festival affords music students an opportunity for an adjudicated performance assessed on sight-reading skills.

Attendance Notes

Return your permission slip as soon as possible!


Because this is a Saturday event, students will provide their own transportation. If you need help arranging a ride, please let Ricky Alegria or Jo Smith-Nilsson know so that they can help you do so.

Performance Times


String Orchestra students will arrive at Fremont High School at 1 p.m. and leave at 4:30 p.m. 

Chamber Orchestra students will arrive at Fremont High School at 2 p.m. and leave at 5 p.m. This is so the performers can support one another and provide an audience to the other  ensembles.
