Retired Rhode Island Music Educators (RRIME) who retain their RIMEA membership are considered members of RRIME. RRIME and other State Retired Music Education organizations are affiliated with the National Association of Music Education's National Council of Retired Members.
Retired members in Rhode Island have many opportunities to continue to be active in their profession by assisting in the work of the RIMEA. Opportunities are present for auditioning, adjudicating, mentoring, grant writing, in advocacy and other programs and activities.
RRIME has breakfast meetings on the first Thursday of the month from September to June (September's meeting may be the second Thursday depending upon the lateness of Labor Day). Friends and associates meet for both social and business purposes with the stated mission of supporting the work of RIMEA. All are welcome. For further information contact Kevin Kane.
RRIME sponsors two scholarship concerts each year to benefit students in music education programs from in-state institutions. The concerts are free and open to the public, but donations are gratefully accepted.
In addition, RRIME sponsors the Annual Honors Recital each June featuring "concert-ready" students from the annual Solo & Ensemble Festival.
The 19th Annual RRIME Honors Recital, featuring some of the best and brightest students that participated in the 2020 Solo & Ensemble Festival, will take place on Sunday, June 20, 2021 @ 3:00 p.m. in the Ryan Concert Hall at Providence College's Smith Center for the Arts.
