Winterfest - High School and Middle School Band Festival
Winterfest is a competitive invitational high school and middle school honor band festival assembling talented young musicians from throughout the Coastal Empire into two formidable festival concert bands.
The 2014 festival is scheduled for November 20-22 on the Armstrong Campus. Students must be recommended by their band directors and should be among the best performers in their band or orchestra.
To apply, students must submit their signed application form and a CD representative of their playing proficiency. (Click link in the right column of this page to download application instructions.) CD's will be used to decide seating placements. Membership is competitive, and students from every state are eligible. Application and CD deadline is October 9th.
Students selected for membership will arrive at Armstrong State University in Savannah on Thursday, November 20th by 5:30 p.m. for registration and a special performance by the Armstrong Wind Ensemble. A registration fee is required of each participant selected and will be announced on this site later in the year. All students must be accompanied by their director or by a designated parent chaperon. Out-of-town students, directors, and parent chaperons can be housed in nearby area motels.
