WELCOME MESSAGE FROM RONALD MEERS, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF TMEA

Welcome to the 2017 Tennessee Music Education Association’s Professional

Development Conference. This year’s convention features several musical offerings

from our Tennessee All-State Musicians and selected conference performance

ensembles, all of whom are sure to deliver exceptionally musical performances.

Ronald Meers,

Executive Director

Some of the most knowledgeable clinicians in America, some from among

the ranks of Tennessee’s finest music educators, will present workshops and

professional development sessions designed to engage, inspire and inform. The

Tennessee Music Education Association takes great pride in the relationships

between our association and these outstanding music education leaders. With

the TI:ME Music Technology Conference, held in conjunction with our convention,

there are even more opportunities to for professional growth. Don’t forget to visit

our exhibit hall. Many new ideas, travel companies, music publishers, fundraising

companies, resources, prizes, and friends await you there!

We hope you enjoy renewing old friendships and making new ones while

attending the convention at the world-class Gaylord Opryland Resort and

Convention Center. We are confident that you will return home with many

innovative concepts and ideas that will help you and your students reach your

highest goals with a sense of energy and vigor for the months ahead.

WELCOME MESSAGE FROM JOHNATHAN VEST, ED. D., PRESIDENT OF TMEA

Johnathan Vest, Ed. D.

President of TMEA

On behalf of the Tennessee Music Education Association Board of Directors,

Conference and All-State chairs, let me say “Welcome to Nashville!” Our

TMEA Conference has many great opportunities for our state music educators

of all levels to sharpen their skills, hear the best performing groups Tennessee

has to offer, see the latest materials and equipment, and network with each

other. Take the time to look through this program and plug in your schedule

with our EventMobi (our mobile app that will help you plan your day, interact

with sessions, and explore the exhibits)!

Our All-State Ensembles also offer something for everyone, so make sure that

you take the time to not only watch a rehearsal with a master conductor but to

attend the concerts as well.

Brad Turner

Co–Conference Chair

I hope when you leave this year’s conference you’ll feel rejuvenated and ready

to be the best music educators ever! Tennessee is blessed to have great

students, teachers, and supporters of music. Thank you for being TMEA!

WELCOME MESSAGE FROM BRAD TURNER AND PAUL WATERS,

CO–CONFERENCE CHAIRS

We are pleased to host the TMEA Professional Development Conference once

again, and the Tennessee All-State Ensembles in Nashville, Music City, U.S.A.!

All events take place at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center.

This year’s conference is streamlined, with careful consideration to the timing

of various events. There are no sessions that are at the same time in the same

discipline and no meetings during a session. As it was in the recent past, the

conference includes discipline-specific “visit the exhibits” time. There are also

many dining options available at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention

Center with a variety of cuisines.

James P. Waters,

Co–Conference Chair

We are very excited to host the TMEA Professional Development Conference and

the Tennessee All-State Ensembles. We hope you enjoy your time in Nashville.

Aus Holbergs Zeit, Op. 40...................................................................................................................Edvard Grieg (1843-1907)

1. Praeludium

2. Sarabande

5. Rigaudaon

Water Night............................................................................................................................................... Eric Whitacre (b. 1970)

JEFFREY GROGAN, CONDUCTOR

Applauded for performances “high in energy, with close attention to ebb and flow,”

American conductor Jeffrey Grogan is hailed as a musical leader who “knows what kind

of sound he wants from an orchestra,” “rich and vibrant.” His humanistic leadership

style, coupled with a strong command of skills as a musical communicator, has

earned him an impressive reputation with audiences and music programs throughout

the country. Known for “shrewd programming, skillful rehearsing, and an energized

performance,” Grogan was recently chosen to participate in the prestigious Bruno

Walter National Conductor Preview sponsored by the League of American Orchestras.

Jeffrey Grogan has been Education and Community Engagement Conductor for the

New Jersey Symphony Orchestra since 2006. He leads the NJSO in a variety of

concerts each season. He has also recently conducted performances with the Little

Orchestra Society of New York, Adelphi Chamber Orchestra and the New York Concerti

Sinfonietta where the reviewer stated:

“Maestro Grogan was an ideal partner. Under his direction, orchestra and soloist

rose to a glorious culmination in the last movement, glowing with passionate

fervor evocative of Scriabin’s orchestral masterwork, Poem of Ecstasy. The

performance was deservedly greeted by cheers from the capacity audience.”

Jeffrey Grogan considers his work with young musicians one of the cornerstones

of his career. He serves as conductor and Artistic Director of the Greater Newark

Youth Orchestras, the InterSchool Orchestras of New York and the New Jersey Youth

Symphony. Just this past season, his youth orchestras have performed to capacity

crowds at both Carnegie Hall and the Musikverein in Vienna. He has recently appeared

as a guest conductor at the University of Georgia, Indiana University, the Manhattan

School of Music, and the Mannes School of Music Pre-College Division.

Jeffrey Grogan was previously on faculty at the University of Michigan, Ithaca College

and Baylor University. He taught public school in the Desoto (Texas) Independent

School District. Grogan is a graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University and the

University of Michigan.

Jeffrey Grogan holds the following positions:

• Education and Community Engagement Conductor of the New Jersey

Symphony Orchestra;

• Conductor and Artistic Director of the Greater Newark Youth Orchestras;

• Conductor and Artistic Director of the InterSchool Orchestras of New York;

• Conductor and Artistic Director of the New Jersey Youth Symphony.

IT’S A NEW ERA

IN EDUCATION

What does that mean for you as a music educator?

Music advocates have begun the hard work of ensuring the

Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) is properly implemented

across the country. With music included as part of a wellrounded

education, now more than ever, your voice and

expertise as a music educator is critical.

NAfME is here to help you make a strong case for music

education under ESSA.

“Everything ESSA”

Visit bit.ly/NCLBends for all the resources you need to understand ESSA and take action to

ensure implementation includes music at the state level. NAfME’s Toolkits include:

• ESSA in Plain English: What It Means for You: Learn more about this historical law and see our

detailed FAQ that features questions asked by music educators just like you.

• ESSA Implementation Toolkit: This thorough resource links your program with admissible

provisions in ESSA so you can make your case for your program where you work.

• NAfME Field Guide to State Lobbying: This document explains the ins and outs of what you

can do to lobby at the state level.

Webinars

At bit.ly/NCLBends, you can receive recognition for professional development valued at one

contact hour for watching these webinars:

• ESSA Passage and Next Steps

• Title IV, Opportunities to Learn, and You!

• Federal Funding Facts
