& News From Our Division Chairs We hope that everyone had time to reflect on the past year’s activities and was able to take time to relax the body and mind. By the time


you receive this edition of TEMPO magazine we will be well into our fall activities and will probably be planning or rehearsing concert mate- rial for the winter concerts. About this time, the music administrators will have been visiting the classrooms and trying to work with the new evaluation procedures. The members of the NJMAA spent much of last year at our workshops working together to help each other through the process of the new evaluation system that has been set up by the state and the boards of education. Our Executive Board along with selected presenters offered informative topics to our members relating to the new evaluation process and our membership had ample opportunity to discuss issues that might be unique to their district. Many of the workshops we hold this year will continue to relate to the new evaluation process. The following is a list of the workshops and dates: 10/4/13 12/6/13 2/7/14

Please have them send their name and email address to our treasurer/membership chairperson, Thomas Weber, at webert@eht.k12.nj.us so that they can become part of a resourceful organization. Our meetings are held at the Rutgers Club on the campus of Rutgers University on the New Brunswick campus. Meetings/Workshops begin at 9:00 a.m. with hospitality starting at 8:30 a.m. Check the NJMAA website-www.njmaa.org or http://rutgersclub.edu/directions.pdf for information and directions.

We hope that you had an enjoyable summer and are having a successful start of the school year. During the summer months the NJMEA


Band Procedures Committee has met several times to plan for the upcoming school year. The 2014 NJ All-State Bands will be conducted by Richard Clary, Wind Ensemble and Patrick Dunnigan, Symphonic Band, both from


Florida State University. In celebration of the 75th


anniversary of the New Jersey All-State Band, NJMEA has commissioned composer Dana Wilson to write a


piece to be premiered by the 2014 All-State Symphonic Band at the concert in February. Wilson will be in attendance at the NJMEA confer- ence and anniversary concert and will present an open rehearsal with Dunnigan to present the commission to conference attendees. Any solo suggestions need to be submitted to Bruce Yurko, solo chair, or any region representative. The recommendation must include a copy of the suggested solo, the solo it is recommended to replace and rationale for the change. The region representatives for the committee are: Region I - Lewis Kelly, Gregory Mulford, Mindy Scheierman; Region II - Jules Haran, Mark Kraft, Brian Toth; Region III - Deb Knisely, Phil Senseney. Thank you to the committee for their hard work this summer and throughout the year, for their tireless work for the students of


New Jersey! TEMPO
