Clinics and Festivals


District Clinics and Festivals are held in all six of the WMEA Music Districts. See the calendar for specific dates and events.

The district clinics are organized to provide an opportunity for high school students in band and choir programs to experience membership in a large ensemble under the direction of a guest conductor of recognized excellence. 

The district festivals are organized to provide music students an opportunity, as individuals and members of an ensemble, to perform and be evaluated by a music educator other than their own. It enables students to compare their performances with that of other area schools and provide incentive for improvement and continued participation. District Festivals are held during week 41 or 42 of the WHSAA calendar. Festivals serve as opportunities for assessment on the state or district standards based upon a common rubric score.
