The FMEA Crossover Festival is an annual event that celebrates students as makers of music from popular music genres such as rock, alternative, blues, pop, R&B, hip hop, funk, folk, indie rock, electronic dance music, country, rap, punk, soul, metal, Southern rock, Latin, new age, reggae, etc.
The 2021 event will be held during the FMEA Professional Development Conference. Date, time, and location are yet to be announced.
Teachers whose submissions are selected for participation will be notified by November 16, 2020. Please note, all students in selected submissions are expected to participate in Crossover activities throughout the entire event.
Selected students will perform their two pieces (10 minute time limit, and at least one piece must be an original) and then receive a 15-20 minute clinic with one or more clinicians.
A jam session including all participants, teachers, and clinicians will occur at the close of the festival.
