2024-25 Changes to NEKMEA Middle Level Bands
At the June 2024 NEKMEA Board Meeting, the board took the following actions:
  • The board approved a 7th grade honor band and an 8th grade honor band.
  • These bands will be director/school nominated (paper bands).
  • Each school will get up to 12 nominations per grade level.
  • All nominating schools will get at least one musician selected per band.
  • The 9th grade honor band will no longer exist. 9th graders will need to audition for a spot in one of the 3 NEKMEA HS honor bands.
