This year the Charlie Dixon Elementary Music Festival will be held on Thursday evening, March 14th at 6:30 p.m. at the First Baptist Church of Ocala, 2801 SE Maricamp Rd. Doors will open at 5:45 PM. Parents, friends and family are invited to come participate in this delightful concert. It is truly an opportunity your child will not forget. Singing with approximately 700 students from around the county is quite an exhilarating and challenging experience.
Each school has TWO tickets reserved for EACH student to purchase prior to the event. This is to guarantee all students participating will have someone in attendance to watch them. The tickets will be $5.00 each. We can accept cash or checks made payable to MCMA. Any unsold tickets will be available for purchase at the door the night of the concert. As seating is limited in the hall, there is a good chance this event will sell out! Please get your tickets early.
Performance attire: All black bottoms: long black pants, black belt, black socks, black shoes.
Group 1: Green Polo
Group 2: Yellow Polo
Group 3: Red Polo
