Perhaps you are aware of most of the facts concerning our music festivals; however, certain facts bear repeating. This district festival is one of the many festivals sponsored by the SCSBOA. Judges, who are specialists in their respective fields, are hired to make constructive comments and criticism using the official adjudication forms. They are selected by the association and have met the standards of this professional organization.
No one is a winner; there is no “first place.” Ratings are given, including Superior, Excellent, Good, Fair, and Poor. If we receive a “Superior” rating for our performance, we become eligible to go on to the regional festival. The rating standards are set by experienced music educators; however, the rating received is not as important as the learning process that has preceded the performance.
This festival is open to the public; and you are cordially invited to share with us the intellectual, aesthetic, and social growth that is gained through musical performance!
