Area Schools to Participate in Conference Music Festival
Bands and choirs from 11 schools will flock to Armstrong High School Monday for the Northwest Suburban Conference Music Festival.
Robbinsdale Armstrong High School students don’t have class on Monday, but that doesn’t mean that the school won’t be full of activity.
Student-musicians from the Northwest Suburban Conference will be participating in the Northwest Suburban Conference Music Festival--a day-long event filled with student concerts, music critiques, a dinner and grand finale performance.
Osseo and Maple Grove Senior High School band, choir and orchestra members will perform throughout the day, according to the event schedule.
The festival website says that student-musicians write their own concert critiques and share them with their director, which gives students the opportunity to “listen to music with understanding, and celebrate the artistic achievements of other student-musicians.”
A number of accomplished guest conductors will work with the students during the festival.
The day will come to an end at 7 p.m. when the All-Conference Band and Orchestra members play in the grand finale concert.
