Affiliate Regional Music Festivals

Music for All is proud to partner with instrumental and vocal festivals across the country to present Affiliate Regional Music Festivals.

Affiliate Regional Music Festivals are part of Music for All’s ongoing support of the essential core of every music program: the concert idiom. Music for All will provide one Music for All National Festival evaluator to participate, as well as a student and teacher scholarship for each Festival to award to the Music for All Summer Symposium.

Bands participating in Affiliate Regional Music Festivals are strongly encouraged to consider repertoire from our Core Repertoire Guides.
