Your ensembles are cordially invited to the First Annual San Fernando Valley Music Festival Series being held at Chaminade College Preparatory in West Hills on April 4, 5, and 6, 2013.
The Festivals will be run as a true performance environment including programs, professional lighting, and sound. In addition to many wonderful school groups, the days will also be filled with clinics and master-classes. And we are very excited to announce that our featured performers at the Jazz Festival on April 6, will be the STAN KENTON ALUMNI BAND directed by MIKE VAX.
April 4 - Choirs and Orchestras
April 5 - Orchestras and Concert Bands
April 6 - Jazz Big Bands and Combos
Every ensemble will receive a plaque recognizing their rating and participation in addition to the adjudication sheets, and a digital recording of the adjudicators’ comments. In divisions with 2 or more groups, placements will also be awarded and outstanding soloists recognized.
Our Concert groups will have a FOURTH adjudicator, just to give feedback to the conductor!
To date, we have commitments from a number of active professors of music from CSU Northridge, Pepperdine, California Lutheran, Loyola-Marymount, and CalArts. We will update our website as committments are made.
Each ensemble will be classified based on the grades enrolled and the experience of the ensemble.
