Dates: Thursday March 10th - Friday March 11th 2016
This is a non-competitive festival designed to enhance open and honest exchange between the clinician/conductor and students. Participation by school groups is by invitation only. We invite orchestras from throughout the Northwest who have gained a reputation of excellence.
We at CWU are looking forward to two days of inspired music making! This year, we expect 20 -30 orchestras to be a part of this educational experience. Space is limited so please submit your online registration form early to guarantee your position.
NOTE: Please provide for the judges three sets of music for each piece you will perform. Measures should be numbered on each score.. Mark each score with your school name to facilitate their return. Please keep copyright laws in mind and plan accordingly.
Each school will have 25 minutes on stage.. Orchestras are encouraged to plan 10-15 minutes of music, allowing one of the adjudicators to spend 10-15 minutes with the group making suggestions. This will be followed by a 25 minute clinic in another room with a second adjudicator.
