High School Band Directors, we are asking you to nominate up to 3 of your best percussionists to attend the workshop.  You should come too!  There is no cost associated with attending the workshop. 

Students may audition to play a solo on the festival concert.  Interested students should prepare a concert solo work and up to 3 soloists will be chosen to perform their piece that evening.  Playing a solo is not required to attend the festival.
