Dear SCMEA Membership:

After much consideration and consultation with Suffolk County school districts and host sites, we have decided to cancel this weekend's festival.
As the week has progressed, more sites have been unable to host the festivals nor send their students to the event due to the COVID-19 outbreak. While we considered alternative plans, ultimately, the health and safety of our students and teachers is paramount. I know that many students and families will be disappointed in this cancellation, but please know that this decision was not made lightly or hastily.

In the coming weeks the SCMEA Festivals Team will be in contact with the membership about the particulars surrounding the cancellation of this festival, including but not limited to ticket refunds and music collection. It is advised that everyone check their email regularly for updates on these items and more.
