Solo & Ensemble Festival provides 7th & 8th graders an opportunity to perform for an evaluator with an accompanist or with friends.  You'll receive valuable tips on how to improve your playing skills.


For the 2019-2020 school year, the festival will take place on Saturday, October 12th at Simpson Middle School. Students may perform a solo (with piano accompaniment) and/or up to two ensembles.


To ensure that students are prepared and represent our orchestra well, they will play for the directors at three "performance checkpoints" before the festival:


Entry Forms and Fees Due: 9/4 

Music Approval: by Friday 9/4
Performance Check Point #1: by Friday, 9/20
Performance checkpoint #2: by Friday, 10/4
