MJA Extravaganza Information

The Massachusetts Judges Association is putting on the MJA Extravaganza during the month of January!
This is basically a chance for students of ALL AGES – and even adults- to submit any performance video for high quality feedback from professional judges. They can go for a rating only, or they can go in the competitive lane and be eligible for State Champion awards in all of the categories! They have so much – it is a great option for solo students – small ensembles-large ensembles…..anything really!

Register in January, submit in early February.
