The festival provides an opportunity for sixth through twelfth grade musicians to perform for highly qualified music educators and professionals.

They also get a clinic session with the pros.

“When they band’s going for the clinic session, basically what you’re going to do is get that personal 1 on 1 clinician on with the whole band and the director,” said John Warren, the festival coordinator.

“Basically you’re talking through ‘okay, gang you’ve played these things, these are some areas that I think you really ought to look at that may really improve your already great performance.'”

The festival wraps up Wednesday afternoon at NDSU.
