The festival will be held on April 8, 2017 at Creekside Middle School. Creekside’s address is 3201 Hercules Rd, Woodstock, IL 60098.

Confused about what will be offered at this festival? Here are some explanations of the different aspects:

Clinics—Each ensemble will get 30 minutes with a clinician plus a 15 minute concert. It is highly recommended to prepare either three pieces or 15 minutes worth of music. This is recommended so that each ensemble will have sufficient time with the clinician to get quality feedback. A recording of every band’s clinic will be created and provided free of charge to the directors upon request.

Workshops—Guest artists will give 50 minute lecture style workshops. All festival participants will be given free admission to all workshops. Non-participants can pay $5 per workshop or $10 to get a pass for all workshops.

Concert–In order to expose students to professional level performances there will be an evening concert to conclude the day. The concert will take place on Saturday night from 8:00-9:30 and will feature the guest artists and the mass band. Tickets at the door will be $25, or can be pre-ordered for $20.
