Statement Regarding COVID-19 Outbreak

Due to concerns regarding the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak, the Arizona Music Educators Association, in conjunction with ABODA and ACE, has decided to cancel all elementary, junior high, and high school all-state auditions and concerts for this school year. Due to the complexity of these large-scale events, it is not possible to reschedule these events later in the year.

The health and well-being of our students, teachers, and communities are of primary importance to our organization. Thank you for understanding that this decision was not taken lightly by our board members. The financial ramifications regarding these events will be discussed at a later date and more information will be shared with music teachers when it is available.
