Testimonials

Thank you creating a well run festival that has consistently provided our students with a positive and enriching musical experience. The support staff is friendly, helpful and accommodating. The adjudicators are encouraging and well prepared to understand and coach the developmental stages of younger players. It’s so nice to have this opportunity for young musicians so close to home. 

TTband teacher
We really do love your festival. It is such a great experience, the judges are fantastic and work so well with the kids. The judges really look to encourage the kids to continue participating in the arts and to work hard at their craft. 

Thanks for working so diligently with us to make sure we made it there this year, and we will be back next year!

AKhigh school chorus teacher
Everything seemed to run so smoothly.  The college students that were assisting were a pleasure, always had a smile!
For me, the after-performance clinic was truly the highlight and elevated the festival from a “medal-driven” experience to a Master Class opportunity.
