Idaho Orff 2023 Honor Ensemble

Idaho Orff and IMEA welcome back the Elementary Orff Ensemble to the 2023 IMEA Professional Development Conference at Idaho State University in Pocatello, February 2-4, 2023! The directing team of Orff Specialists David Thaxton from Reno, Nevada, and Ardith Collins of New York City, will be singing, speaking, moving, and playing with elementary students, 4th – 6th grades, Thursday and Friday, February 2nd and 3rd with a performance on Saturday morning, February 4.

Interested students should be able to match pitch and keep a steady pulse and must be recommended by their music teacher. Students from around the state, outside of the Pocatello area, will be welcomed but must be housed in a local hotel room with a parent or guardian or with family/friends in the area with a parent or guardian.

Student fees for this All-State opportunity are $155 and include lunch, snacks, necessary music, and the Idaho Orff/ IMEA Elementary Ensemble T Shirt. Registration will begin on October 2 with forms and fees due on November 28.
