Since 1955, the Tuolumne County Superintendent of Schools Office and the Tuolumne County Music Educators’ Association (TCMEA) have coordinated an annual countywide elementary music festival. TCSOS started the festival to showcase all of the individual music programs at the elementary schools.
The Tuolumne County Elementary Honor Music Festival has continued and prospered due to the efforts of past and present music educators. The festival carries a great deal of tradition in Tuolumne County, and generations of families fondly remember their participation in this event.
Honoring a Legacy
Bruce Paxton, the countywide music consultant, was instrumental in starting the festivals and was actively involved for 30 years. Sadly, Bruce passed away in 2005. This festival is dedicated to his memory to honor Bruce and the legacy he began so many years ago.
