School Classes

Section 16: SCHOOL CLASSES
All Entrants will be required to observe the Public Health Guidelines regarding social distancing, masking and other barriers, or other requirements in place at the time of their performance.
Note:  Schools may enter multiple groups in one Class.  In this case, the Festival Administration will split the Class.
Note:  Perform appropriate repertoire in all school classes at a level appropriate to the students' development.
Note:  Popular music and show tunes should be avoided in secondary school band, choir and orchestra classes.  These styles can be performed in other relevant classes as found throughout the syllabus.
Note:  In all jazz classes, conductors are encouraged to choose repertoire that aligns with the level of their concert ensembles, i.e., bands entered in the A class should be performing repertoire at a similar level with their ensemble.  Conductors are also encouraged to adhere to the standard jazz instrumentation where possible.
