6th Grade Honors Choir

Monday, September 13, 2021

Dear Choir Director:

The 2022 6th Grade Honors Choir Clinic and Concert will be held on Monday, April 4 at Moberly Area Community College (MACC) Activities Center.

I am excited to announce that Beth Burch has agreed once again to be our director. Beth Burch taught 4th, 5th, and 6th graders for many years in Marshfield, MO. While at Marshfield, the Junior Jay Singers performed at MMEA under her direction. Prior to that, she taught Junior High and High School choral music at Spokane and Reeds Spring. Beth retired from the public school system and currently teaches music at New Covenant Academy in Springfield, MO.

We will use the same repertoire that had been chosen for last year but we were not able to use. It is listed below.

The repertoire for the 2022 Clinic and Concert is:

“I Will Clap My Hands” (Joseph Martin – on list) JW Pepper # 10049477, Unison/2 Part Lorenz Corporation @ $1.95

“Dona Nobis Pacem” (Mary Lynn Lightfoot – on list) JW Pepper # 1963586, 2 Part Heritage Music Press @ $2.05 **Please be aware that there is more than one Lightfoot piece with a similar title. I have included the JW Pepper numbers as a reference for the correct piece.

Dear Northeast Music Educators,

We made it, or maybe a few of you have a bit more to go! Find time to get rejuvenated whatever that means for you!

If you are a new teacher or you know a new teacher near you you need to have them check into the MMEA Mentoring Conference.  This conference is a great way to start your teaching career and make many connections with other new music teachers in the state. Your school district may have assigned you a mentor, but you also want to have someone that is in your field.  You may also want to contact Lisa Dobbs, Mentoring Chair for the northeast district ldobbs@fayetteschool.org.  If you are aware of any new teachers in the area we also ask you to pass their name along to Lisa.  

Your NEMMEA Executive Board Officers are here to serve.  Do not hesitate to contact them as you are preparing for events this school year. 

District Officers

Lets all work together to help the students of our NEMMEA have the best musical experiences we can offer! If you need anything at all please do not hesitate to contact me, my info is below!
