Welcome To Great East Festivals

School Music Festivals

​Great East Festivals was created and established by music educators for music educators. The scope and philosophy of Great East Festivals is to serve as a support system for your music performance groups and to provide a formative evaluation in a non-threatening atmosphere. Our criterion for musical and educational experiences is of the highest caliber. On the basis of these standards, you can be assured that all of our school music festivals will satisfy the needs of the student and teacher/conductor.

Great East Festivals offers an opportunity for performance in an educational atmosphere. Our events are non-competitive elementary, middle, and high school music festivals and are geared to musical organizations of all sizes, grades and ability levels. Performances can be scheduled for:

No matter what level of proficiency your group may be, our festivals are an excellent opportunity for your students to be evaluated and participate in a clinic with adjudicators as well as receive a formative evaluation in an educational setting.
