Registration Links for Region Orchestra – a new page has been developed under “Membership Only” for registration links for SCMEA Orchestra Division events.  These links are for Sponsors only and the page is password protected.  Teachers must have updated membership for access.  Parents and students will need to contact your Orchestra Director to be registered for a specific event.



Building the South Carolina Graded Music List – while everyone is selecting and rehearsing pieces for CPA and Spring Performances, we would like to start building our updated SC Graded Music List.  The link above will take you to the Google form to submit your recommended piece.  You may submit as many works as you would like – just remember to fill out the Google form for each piece.  If you have any questions or need help with anything, contact Colleen Marcou at 

At this point, this form is just to collect “data” (pieces/works).   




New Page:  Check out “Clinics, Festivals, & Fun” for Orchestra and String Events across South Carolina.




Welcome to the South Carolina Music Educators Association Orchestra Division! Our mission is to promote and support the development of string classes and orchestra programs in South Carolina schools. Our state is comprised of five regions, with each region hosting various musical events that strengthen music education for our students. These events include Region and Allstate Orchestras, Concert Performance Assessment, and Solo and Ensemble Festivals. The goal for our website is that it will serve as a valuable resource for educators, students, and parents as they seek information about the programs throughout our state. Please ensure your NAfME and SCMEA membership is updated as portions of our site are member-protected.

Please address any technical issues with the website to our webmaster at

We look forward to a wonderful year of music education and hope to see you at our events.
Allison Key, President
SCMEA Orchestra Division
