The Festival, organized in 1945 to instill in young
people an enjoyment and appreciation of all the arts, while encouraging
the study of music and dance and promoting high standards of
performance, is operated as a civic non-profit organization. Our mission
statement is: "To encourage, develop and improve the performance of
young musicians and dancers through professional adjudication." Entrants
in the Festival receive an individual written and oral evaluation of
their performance by qualified teachers and concert artists. Those in
competitive classes may receive medals or a chance to perform in evening
We are excited to offer online registration to our festival entrants and teachers for the very first time. Please be patient with us and this new way to manage our event. The syllabus (a.k.a. Preliminary Bulletin) lists the divisions and classes available in our 73rd Festival, May 13 through May 18, 2018.
When teachers create their own account they will receive an ID. They
can supply this ID to their students who can then insert it into the
registration form field.
How it works: When a teacher supplies their ID to their students for the registration process, they will be able to view the classes the student registered for.
