GMEA (Georgia Music Educators Association) is our state music organization.
It is a state affiliate of NAfME (The National Association for Music Education).
GMEA sponsors several events for the enrichment of orchestra students:
- Solo & Ensemble Festival
- District Honor Orchestra Weekend
- All-State Orchestra Weekend
- LGPE: Large Group Performance Evaluation
GMEA In-Service Conference
As part of GMEA's annual in-service, bands are chosen from a blind taped audition to perform as "demonstration groups" for the state's music educators. The Hightower Trail Orchestra has been invited to perform two times (2003, 2013).
