Greetings From Choice Music Events

Colleagues – I hope your summer has gone well!

Greetings from Choice Music Events (CME).  CME is dedicated to providing all band, choir, and orchestra students positive, educational, and enriching performance opportunities while enhancing the music education profession. We are more committed than ever to serving you and your students with events that contain educational quality and great value for your program.

Choice Music Events is a full time music event and festival company that hosts Showcase of Music Festivals (SOM) in most of the major cities of Texas with multiple sites and weekends. These are in great concert halls with great adjudicators and professional recordings.  We host multiple choral events and instrumental events in different halls each weekend in April and May. In an effort to control costs and to not employ a sales force, our events and festivals are accessed, priced, and scheduled the same for all tour companies. You may only want to buy the performance and that is okay. The tour companies are our sales force.  Music Across Texas (MAT), which is managed by Rick Yancey, is the second performance division and it is an event that is more relaxed and priced accordingly.  It is booked and operated directly with Mr. Yancey and involves a performance with park entry.
