ArkMEA Honors High School Day

On November 6, 2014, students from around Arkansas will join in rehearsals and an evening performance of arrangements and compositions for a cappella jazz choir, guitar ensemble, and percussion ensemble.  If you have never played in an ensemble of this type you are in for a fun day. Students must be nominated by an ArkMEA member and be in the 11th or 12th grade.

Directors for the groups are choosing a variety of literature to challenge and entertain the musicians.
