The Massachusetts Instrumental and Choral Conductors Association (MICCA) is proud to welcome you to our web site. As you navigate through our site we hope you will find valuable information about our programs as well as registration forms for our festivals. MICCA is dedicated to the study of music through performance. Creating opportunities for evaluation and expert opinion and feedback to all our participants in a non-competitive setting is our main focus. These festivals include district and state Marching Festivals, a Concert Festival, a Choral Festival, and a Solo & Ensemble Festival. MICCA also offers the music educator a resource through a Task Force as well as sponsoring clinics at the MMEA All-State Conference in March. MICCA has a Commission Works Project underway to provide a resource for the creation of new music in the performance arena accessible to young students. Through our Gold Medal Showcase program we continue to make outstanding venues like Symphony Hall and Mechnaics Hall available to music students of all ages.
The study of music has long been known as a valuable part of a child's education. Now, more than ever, MICCA believes that the study of music is necessary for the complete student. We, on the MICCA executive board, work to serve this basic belief and hope all involved will benefit from our efforts. Please contact any member of the MICCA Board with any questions, suggestions, or to volunteer a new project idea.
