This ensemble is made up of “the best of the best” from colleges and universities all across the state. The performance is free and open to the public.

There are also four music education majors attending the conference this year, including Jessica Bouska, Katie Kosiek, Marilyn Yennie and Sara Kua. For additional information regarding the annual MMEA Mid-Winter Clinic, go to
