Dear Band Colleague:
Utah Valley University will once again be holding a Junior High/Middle School Band Festival on Thursday May 8 and Friday May 9 in the Ragan Theater on UVU campus. This particular festival is a non-competitive, feedback-only event open to 6th-9th grade bands. Performance time is followed by an informal clinic with one of our featured adjudicators.
Ensembles may register for a thirty-minute time slot. (A maximum of 12-15 minutes of music is recommended.) Multiple ensembles from the same school are welcome to register for additional time slots. Bands are welcome to listen to the performances and clinics of other ensembles before and after their performance time.
The registration fee for each band is $125.00. This includes audio recordings of both the performance and clinic as well as written feedback. A photographer will also be present to take pictures of your ensemble following the clinic. These pictures are available for optional purchase.
We are confidant that you'll enjoy a rewarding and informative experience as you perform on campus and work with our clinicians.
Please fill out the registration form and submit with credit card payment . Entries are due April 1 and will be considered in the order they are received. The slots do fill up quickly, so please register early. We will confirm your registration, coordinate a performance time, and provide additional instructions upon receipt of payment.
It is important you read through the UVU Festival Instruction Sheet for parking, student drop off, and other on-campus information.
Feel free to contact me directly with any questions or concerns. I look forward to enjoying your excellent performances.
Dr. David Fullmer
Director of Bands
