East Marion Honor Choir
Hello East Marion Honor Choir and Parents,
We have certainly had a trying and confusing last quarter. I was very disappointed when our Charlie Dixon Music Festival was canceled. It was a lot of work and preparation, but safety must always be first.
Some have inquired about the ticket money being refunded, as we were not even able to postpone this event.
MCMA, which is the Marion County Music Association and the organization that is responsible for the event, has not been able to meet due to COVID 19 and the shut down of the schools. Until schools are reopened they are unable to refund any ticket money. If you still have your tickets please hold onto them.
Another option would be to just donate the ticket cost to MCMA for future music events and contributions to participating music teacher budgets. It has been MCMA's policy to share proceeds from the Charlie Dixon Music Festival with participating music teachers to enhance their school budgets allowing them to purchase much needed instruments, instructional materials and online music resources.
I appreciate your patience and understanding in these unprecedented times. Please know MCMA is always working to develop and enhance the musical talents of Marion County students.
