Usually, in August, the MN All State Ensembles would attend a week of rehearsals on the campuses of various Minnesota Colleges. This year those camps have been cancelled due to Covid-19 concerns.
The All State ensembles reconvene in February for performances at Orchestra Hall in conjunction with the MMEA Midwinter Clinic. Due to the cancellation of the All State Camps in August, MMEA will be looking to expand the February 2021 reprise experience.
