Greater Richmond Convention Center in Richmond, VA
Guest Conductor: Dr Patrick Ware

Event information and Registration form (PDF)

We are so excited to offer our elementary students a chance to participate in the 2nd annual VMEA All Virginia Orff Ensemble! We happily extend to you the invitation to offer your school the opportunity to join approximately 40 other elementary students in a unique Orff experience. Teachers who would like to participate are directed to choose up to 6 students who are able to play Orff instruments on the beat with excellent hand position and keep their part when playing in an ensemble. Students should be able to sing on pitch and be willing to move or dance with or without a partner. We will accept registrations on a first-received, first-registered basis. We will keep everyone updated on your registration status as we receive them. Once the group has reached its max of 40-45 students, we will inform members through district reps, our websites, and social media that we are no longer accepting registrations.
