MSBOA Festivals: Stevenson Instrumental Music Program


MSBOA Music Festival Information

MSBOAEvery school year, the Stevenson Instrumental Music Program and its students have the opportunity to participate in a number of judged music activities (called Festivals) that are sponsored by the Michigan School Band and Orchestra Association (MSBOA).

These Festivals give students the opportunity to perform what is learned in the classroom, in the practice room, and on the marching field in front of a panel of judges that critique and provide feedback on set standards of performance.

Full band Festivals are typically held at various schools in the area and feature ensembles from across the area. Each group is judged based on their own performance and merits, not against each other.

Students that wish to challenge themselves as either a soloist or as a member of a small group or chamber ensemble have the opportunity each winter to participate in MSBOA's Solo & Ensemble Festivals. Those receiving a First Division rating at the District event have the opportunity to further challenge themselves with participation at the State Solo & Ensemble Festival.
