Welcome to the home page of the North Coast Section of the California Association for Music Education. Our membership serves the Humboldt and Del Norte County areas teaching music to young people at the elementary, middle school, high school, and collegiate levels. It is our hope that all students have access to music education in our schools whether through classroom music, ensembles, or other music classes. A full and complete education includes a music education for our students at every level of schooling.
The North Coast CMEA is proud to offer students many festival performance opportunities in addition to the musical opportunities at their school site. Soloists and chamber ensembles may perform at our Solo and Ensemble Festival, while our large ensemble members can perform at the Jazz, Choral or Instrumental Festival. Each spring we celebrate the wonderful talents of these young musicians in our All County Music Festival. All of our festivals are adjudicated and held annually.
Please follow the links at the top of the page to explore our site and feel free to contact the music educator at your school site or email us if you have any questions. All festival dates and application can be found in the “info” section.
