2019 CBA Middle School Concert Band Festivals

2019 CBA Middle School Concert Band Festivals

210.00

The CBA Middle School Concert Band Festival is an excellent resource and opportunity for your developing students, and a great way to get feedback on your group’s development. The festival includes a clinic with an outstanding music educator. This year, again, there are three regional sites.
Thursday, March 14 - Northern Site, Mountain View HS
Friday, April 19 - Metro Site, Englewood HS
Monday, April 29 - Southern Site, Jack Swigert Aerospace Academy

A maximum of 16 bands will be accepted at each site on a first-come basis. Performance times will be assigned between 8am and 5pm. Please plan on restricting actual playing time to a maximum of 20 minutes! Two pieces of contrasting styles are more than enough for the clinicians to evaluate your performance. 

All participating ensembles are required to listen to at least two other band performances throughout the day. Listening time slots will be assigned so that every performing ensemble is guaranteed an audience and will be scheduled as close to your performance time as possible. The listening assignments are a priority for this festival. It is your responsibility as a director to plan transportation (including costs), release time from your school for all of your students, and any other arrangements in order to make this a wonderful learning experience for our music students.

Entries may be submitted online beginning at 8am on Monday, January 7th and must be completed online or postmarked by Wednesday, January 30th. If it becomes necessary to trade time slots after schedules are determined, directors must do so by requesting to trade times with another band director(s) scheduled at the same festival site. Be sure to inform Casey Cropp of any change to the schedule so that it may be corrected.

Two original judges' scores, plus your own (A TOTAL OF THREE SCORES) must be provided!!! No copies will be accepted unless accompanied by a publisher's letter.

YOU MUST BE A CBA MEMBER IN ORDER TO PERFORM IN THE CBA MIDDLE SCHOOL BAND FESTIVALS. IF YOU ARE NOT A CURRENT CBA MEMBER, PLEASE ADD THE $75 MEMBERSHIP FEE TO YOUR SHOPPING CART BEFORE YOU CHECK OUT.
