Be part of 5,000 students and dozens of educators in this non-competitive festival!
Each festival site will host performing groups from the surrounding area. Each participating group will be given 20-30 minutes to perform musical selections of their choice. Guest clinicians will evaluate each performance and work with the students and their teachers throughout the day. These festivals are intended to provide a memorable and non-competitive musical experience and an opportunity to learn, share and observe.
