Moose Jaw

Band and Choral Festival

May 13-16, 2019

 

About the Moose Jaw Band Festival

Throughout the past 70 years our festival has constantly worked at evolving to meet the needs of the students, the directors, and the school communities. We no longer have a parade, rank the performances, hand out medals, or run throughout the long May weekend. Our changes reflect changes in education while supporting family and school culture. We run throughout the week to allow for family time on the long weekend. We provide hour long clinics giving students the opportunity to work with highly effective educators in their field. Our evening concerts inspire your students while keeping them busy while away from home.
We are still evolving, and next year we are excited to introduce “Moosic in the Park”, providing an opportunity for groups to perform in our Amphitheatre in Crescent Park, a perfect setting for a musical event. Both band and choral directors will also be given a professional development opportunity to meet with other directors and selected clinicians during our “Roundtable Discussions” for directors. Check out the schedule on our web site for details as the time is nigh.

HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU THEN!
