Colorado Bandmasters Association Middle School Concert Band Festivals
The CBA Middle School Concert Band Festival is an excellent resource for your developing ensembles and a great way to get feedback on your band’s development. Elementary directors are also encouraged to participate, as these festivals are an outstanding opportunity for young musicians.
The festival includes 2 to 3 adjudicators, recorded and written feedback, and an off stage clinic. Groups receive ratings from each clinician, however ratings are not posted, as this is a non-competitive festival opportunity. Ratings are for the sole purpose of giving each director a tool for evaluating their ensembles progress. Directors may also choose to perform for comments only.
Two to three pieces of contrasting styles are more than enough for the
clinicians to evaluate your performance.
Cost: $210 per group.
Registration will be open soon!
