Students accepted to the festival will be divided into a select, 75-piece Symphonic Band and two 250-piece festival ensembles.
Students who want to be considered for the Symphonic Band must submit a video recording in addition to the nomination form that is submitted by the teacher. Video auditions are due Friday, December 3 at 11:59 pm. Email videos to Kayla Scholl at [email protected] The audition requirements are:
Video recordings must not be edited.
If students are not accepted into Symphonic Band, they will be selected for one of the other Festival Bands.
Students in the larger groups will be given a chair assignment and copies of their music before they come to the Festival. Those selected for the Symphonic Band will each be given a copy of the 1st-part music for their section, then audition on that music for chair placement once they arrive at the Festival. The expectation is that all students will be very familiar with their music before they arrive.
We do not set a limit on how many students you can nominate, but based on numbers that we have been able to accept in previous years, we suggest nominating between 4 and 12 students from one school.
The fees for the 2022 festival will be available in the fall.

Concert attire is all black or black bottoms with white tops.

Option B: A nice blouse with dress pants/skirt or a dress.
