Festival of Gold

Festival of Gold

Celebrating musical excellence, Festival of Gold is really four fabulous experiences in one: a festival performance; in-depth, hour-long clinics with our clinicians; an encore concert featuring all festival ensembles; and honor choir, honor band, and honor orchestra distinctions. This Festival gives the world’s most accomplished school-aged choirs, bands, and orchestras the opportunity to perform in the nation’s most prestigious venues, and provides unparalleled access to internationally acclaimed adjudicators and conductors. This event was created for ensembles that have achieved a Gold rating at a recent Heritage Festival, Superior rating at a recent state contest, or qualified by audition.
