`ukulele performance and to provide an opportunity for students from various schools to perform on the same stage, HMEA, the Music Department of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa is proud to
host the 2019 All-State `Ukulele at the Mānoa campus. This event will be held November 16, 2019. All middle/intermediate and high school students currently playing in `ukulele ensembles in public
and private schools or taking private lessons are eligible to submit an application for this event. All instructors and directors must be a current member of the National Association for Music
Each year, the NAfME organizes the ALL-NATIONAL HONOR ENSEMBLES. The students who perform in these ensembles are chosen from All-State Festivals. Through this event, an opportunity is also provided to students to perform at the national level.
A limited amount of scholarship will be offered to students based on merit.
