This year, we are trying something new with our end of the year concerts. 
We are combining all of the concerts into a District Arts Festival on Saturday May 7th in the early afternoon/evening. This will involve students in grades 3-12. The times for each performing group will be announced at a later date.

OMEA Large Group Festival to be Hosted by CHS Music Dept.

2016 OMEA Large Group Festival

As in past years, this year the Centerburg H.S. Music Department will host both of the OMEA (Ohio Music Educator's Association) Large Group Performances on Friday, March 4th (Choirs) and Saturday, March 5th (Bands).  The CHS Choir and Band will perform in the festival so we are asking for parents and students alike to please mark their calendars well ahead of time.  In a performance of this caliber  we cannot afford to have any of our members absent.

Come Watch!

Spectators are welcome to attend the performances (schedule to follow) and concessions will be available in the cafeteria.  We would especially like to see some of our middle school music students come to watch, as they can only learn by observing!

We need help!

Both the directors and music boosters will need help during the festival, so if you are a student interested in becoming a host, runner or backstage helper or a parent/guardian interested in volunteering in the concession stand please let us know.  

                                             We hope to see you all there!
