Festival & Clinic

REGISTER HERE

IMEA_Fest&Clinic_3cLogoSince spring of 1992, IMEA has offered the opportunity for schools to participate in our Non-Competitive Festivals.

What is IMEA Festival & Clinic?
The IMEA Festival & Clinic provides groups with an opportunity to perform for a panel of clinicians and receive a masterclass with a master teacher.

Participating Ensembles will receive:

  • Performance opportunity
  • Recorded and Written feedback from 2 qualified clinicians
  • Masterclass opportunity with at least 1 clinician

Who can participate?

  • Elementary school groups 
  • Middle school groups
  • High school groups 
  • Concert bands 
  • Stage bands
  • Jazz bands 
  • Orchestras 
  • Choirs
  • Orff Ensembles

When and where are the festivals?
The dates for the 2018 Festivals can be found here. This list is updated weekly, so be sure to check often for the most accurate information. Expect them to take place the last two weekends of February and the first two weekends of March. 

Why should I bring my group?
The focus of the Festival is the experience of performing quality literature and education, not on a rating.  The clinicians assign no rankings to groups that perform. The power of the festival centers on the immediate feedback received by each group during the clinic session. Clinicians work with groups to reinforce what is taught in class while providing positive feedback for the work that has been done. 

Each performing group receives a plaque that commemorates their experience at the festival.

2018 clinicians are being confirmed. A list of confirmed clinicians will be populated when clinician registrations are finalized.
