Festivals of Music are fantastic opportunities to create memorable experiences for your instrumental and choral groups, showcase your talent, and receive valuable feedback. Three Festivals of Music judges who are familiar with the performing age group provide written and verbal feedback. After each performance, an adjudicator holds a clinic with your group. All Festivals of Music performing groups are recognized at the awards ceremony. Festivals of Music are held all across the United States, giving ample opportunity for groups wishing to travel near or far.
