New This Year

We are excited to announce that we are now accepting Piano recommendations at the Festival of Winds! Pianists who are accepted into the Festival will receive some music in advance to the Festival so that they can do some preparations ahead of the Festival. Students will be working with Dr. Zahari Metchkov and will participate in a performance on Saturday.

While recommendations are always given the highest consideration for participation if submitted by the priority deadline each year, recommendations are always welcome all the way up until the start of the Festival. High school band directors, submit your recommendations online at:
