Details about the event:


Please arrive 15 minutes prior to performance time so children can warm up. Parents are encouraged to come into to room to watch the performance. After the students perform their piece, you will be asked to step out of the room for a few minutes while the adjudicators (2 in each room) discuss the performance and score each child or group. You will be asked back into the room and the teachers will have a few minutes to talk to you about the performance. Our goal is to give each child positive feedback on what we felt they did well and then choose one or two areas of the music where we think they should focus to even better their performance as a well rounded musician. Every child receives a ribbon, a Certificate of Participation, and their scoring sheet. Scores will be tallied and trophy and metal winners will be announced on our website within a few days (We will email parents to let them know the results are posted).

Trophies are given for 1st through 5th place and Medals for 6th through 8th place in each category:

The categories are:

Beginning Band Students:  Solo and Ensembles

Intermediate Band Students: Solo and Ensembles

Advanced Students: Solo and Ensembles

The main purpose of this event is to give each child an opportunity to experience another aspect of performing music and to give students and parents some helpful feedback. We see every child as a “winner” by coming out and participating. It is a great learning experience.
