An active campus organization, NAfME meets regularly to discuss ideas, events, and activities.

As members of NAfME, students get the opportunity to attend the Nebraska Music Educators Association conference, held annually in Lincoln, Nebraska. As part of this three-day conference, students can attend workshops, All State rehearsals, master classes, and performances by local and regional high schools and colleges.


Community Involvement

Peru State's ensembles have a strong presence and reputation on campus and throughout the southeast Nebraska community.  A campus and community favorite, the Jazz Ensemble hosts "Jazz on the Green" in the fall and spring. Unique opportunities also exist for our Peru State Choirs to perform the national anthem for sporting events both on-campus and locally.
