Due to the closing of numerous schools around the state until the end of April, and with the safety of student-participants and their families in mind, the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association and the Washington Music Educators Association have made the decision to postpone the State Solo and Ensemble Contest until further notice. The event was scheduled to be held April 24-25 at Central Washington University.
The WIAA and WMEA are looking at potential rescheduling options for a later date and will keep membership apprised of information as it becomes available.
