& When?
The best advocacy tool for your music program

A Music In The Parks festival provides a year-end assessment by an outside panel and reinforces music skills that have been presented by your faculty.

Experienced instrumental and vocal teachers will offer suggestions on how to improve your students performance. Our master teachers evaluate hundreds of ensembles throughout the course of a festival season. This affords them a unique perspective that an individual teacher may not provide. Frequently, our teachers comment that when a nationally known adjudicator reinforces the same concepts they have been pointing out all year, it has a major impact on their students.

A festival performance increases the visibility of music in the community by representing your school at a national event.

Ensembles from all over the United States and Canada participate in Music In The Parks. Your school and hometown will be announced at the awards ceremony at the park.

Bringing home a trophy is like winning a sporting event. It helps increase awareness of the arts and reflects that the school has a balanced curriculum. Every performing group receives a trophy at Music in the Parks.

Preparing for Music In The Parks helps student motivation and retention.

An evaluated performance at the end of the school year offers a goal after the Spring concert. Teachers are able to encourage musical growth even into the last weeks of school. An annual trip is a motivational reward that helps recruitment and student retention in these programs.
