Honor Music Festival

March 6, 2020

About our Countywide Music Festival

Since 1955, the Tuolumne County Superintendent of Schools Office and the Tuolumne County Music Educators’ Association (TCMEA) has coordinated an annual countywide elementary music festival.  The festival was started as a way 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.

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.  As a way to honor Bruce and the legacy he began so many years ago, this festival is dedicated in his memory.
