After a highly successful year using technology to provide our Solo & Ensemble Festival, we are excited about a return to in-person performance for this year’s event. Scheduled for the first two Saturdays in December, (December 4 & 11, 2021) we invite your students to prepare and perform a piece from one of our wonderful repertoire listings (or a piece of their choice), and have it heard and evaluated by one of our adjudicators. One site will be in the north part of New England - Hartford High School in White River Jct., VT and the second will be in the south - Griswold High School in Griswold, CT.

Your student will receive verbal feedback at the conclusion of their performance and written feedback using our evaluation rubric. Should their piece be listed on the appropriate repertoire, they will also receive a rating of their performance, a rating that we will then use to select the New England Festival Band, Chorus and Orchestra. Those selections will be made available soon after the second Solo & Ensemble Festival. The Concert Festival will be held March 17th, 18th & 19th at Lewis S. Mills High School in Burlington, CT.
