There are ten band and orchestra festivals that occur each school year including the Jazz Ensemble Festival and the Solo and Ensemble Festival.  Clinicians/adjudicators, who are experts in the field of music education, critique the performances and apply ratings according to guidelines established by the Maryland Music Educators Association.  Teachers are given this information, which is designed to be shared with students as they review their performance recordings and written critiques.  The purpose of the county festivals is to serve students and teachers by supplying specific information on how to improve the performance of individual school musical ensembles.

Festival dates and locations will be posted as soon as the dates are set.
