The Middle School Band Festival at Farmington High School helps plant the seeds of excellence early. Through this educational, non-competitive event, middle school concert bands have the opportunity to experience top-notch facilities and clinicians in a positive, motivating atmosphere.

Middle school ensembles attending the FHS Middle School Festival can expect an exhilarating and educationally rewarding experience. Students have the opportunity to participate in a master class with a noted professional conductor/clinician and listen to more than a dozen other middle school bands from throughout Minnesota. Ensembles are evaluated in a non-competitive environment. Each band receives a post-concert clinic, detailed verbal and written notes, and audio recordings of their performance. Directors who have participated in the Festival tell us how they have been inspired by the experience to take their bands to a new level of excellence.
