The symposium is open to middle school and high school music educators and lab ensemble performers. Undergraduates are welcome as Undergrad Auditors or Performers only. IMPORTANT: Registration will be not considered complete until payment is received. Conductor registrations will certainly close quickly, so don’t delay if you are truly interested in conducting. ALL FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. New Jersey In-service credit (“100 hours”) will be provided by MEBCI, an authorized New Jersey provider.
The following is the fee schedule for both members of MEBCI and non-members. (Membership in MEBCI is restricted to music educators employed in Bergen County, New Jersey. Conductors and Auditors working outside Bergen County may only register as non-MEBCI members.)
Please note that all Conductors, Auditors, and Undergrad Auditors are expected to attend all sessions on Saturday and Sunday.
CONDUCTORS (limited to 12) attend the lecture-demonstrations and labs, debriefing sessions at the end of each day, and conduct at each of 3 lab sessions. Conductors will receive a video file of their podium time at all three labs. Conductors perform in the Wind Ensemble lab ensembles if needed to fill the instrumentation. NJ In-Service credit: 1 hour credit per clinic hour plus 4 hours preparation, for a total of 17 in-service credits.
Conductor fee: $275.00 for MEBCI members/$500.00 for non-members. (Fee includes morning coffee/bagels and lunch buffet with beverage on Saturday & Sunday.)
Auditor fee: $175.00 for MEBCI members/$350.00 for non-members/$100.00 for current undergrads. (Fee includes morning coffee/bagels and lunch buffet with beverage on Saturday & Sunday.)
