Festivals and Camps

Throughout the year, the CWU Department of Music is host to a number of diverse music festivals which serve to promote a higher level of music education in the state of Washington.

These gatherings offer participating students and school groups the opportunity to perform for and with professionals who offer clinics, adjudications, and concerts. The students also are able to meet other groups from around the state and hear performances by CWU music ensembles.
