From the President

William Larrabee, President, Erie County Music Educators Association

As we continue our service to music education, ECMEA is proud of its achievements in student programs, teacher involvement, the quality of our festivals, and programs for professional development.

We have made a special effort in recent years to offer expanded services to our music community with:

  • our January Conference Day for Music Educators
  • continued support of our Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra through "Community Nights"
  • representation on the education committees of the BPO and Shea's Performing Arts Center
  • a healthy working relationship with the administration of our member school districts

We continue to give priority to our main purpose of providing quality festivals for our students. For this, we extend heartfelt appreciation to our hundreds of member volunteers whose efforts are directly responsible for the success of our organization.
