RIMEA Music Library Back Online
The RIMEA Music Library contains selections for concert band, jazz ensemble, jazz choir, orchestra, and chorus which were purchased for past Regional Festivals, Honors Festivals, and All-State Festivals. We encourage members to use the selections in the library for your own school groups.
