Southwestern Music Festival
March 17 - 20, 2016
Greetings on behalf of the Department of Music at Southwestern Adventist University. We are honored every year to host an exclusive Music Festival for High School and Academy musicians. The festival features three festival ensembles; a 400 voice choir, 90 piece symphonic band and full symphony orchestra. In addition to the festival ensembles, elite musicians may audition for a Music Festival Scholarship. Students that audition have the chance of being selected as a Scholarship Finalist. All Finalists will have their transportation, food and lodging paid for and will perform in a Showcase Recital on March 16, 2016 at Southwestern Adventist University on the eve of the festival.
Students advancing as finalists may also be awarded a performance scholarship to attend Southwestern by the Department of Music.
We are accepting auditions for all ensembles through November 1, 2015. The deadline for the festival scholarships audition is December 1, 2015. Please contact us if you have any questions, we would love to have you be a part of this special musical experience.
