SAVE THE DATE: MARCH 18-19, 2017

The 2017 competition will be held the weekend of March 18-19, 2017 in Sundin Hall on the campus of Hamline University in Saint Paul.

NEW THIS YEAR: there will be two categories - Winds and Strings. First and second place winners will be named in both categories, with one Grand Prize for the outstanding string OR wind group. We have added a $300 prize to be awarded to a percussion ensemble that makes the finals. Also, It is no longer a requirement that an ensemble have a coach. Check out the new Guidelines.
