ONTARIO MUSIC EDUCATORS’ ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE,
PRODUCED WITH THE CANADIAN MUSIC INDUSTRY EDUCATION COMMITTEE

November 7 – 9, 2024 at the RBC Place & DoubleTree by Hilton, London, Ontario

Sow New Seeds, Grow New Roots

Just as root means the point at which something initiates its course or existence, our conference offers a fresh and original beginning. These new roots encompass all musics and music educations…all curricula and beliefs of many kinds.

As members of OMEA, we are rooted – established deeply and firmly – since 1949. We are bound together by our roots – the parts which are attached into the ground for support. Our roots also convey essentials (in a plant this is water and nourishment). For us, this essential element is the belief that every student should have access to music education where they find a meaningful place.

We will gather after coming from all directions. We will sow new seeds and grow new roots.
