About the Festival

Music For All.

The Pacific Coast Regional Wind Band Festival is one of 23 Music for All Affiliate Music Festivals around the country. This festival brings together 13 of the finest school band programs and over 700 middle and high school students from across the region. Each ensemble will perform in the Carpenter Performing Arts Center for approximately 20 minutes and will then have a 30-minute clinic with one of our renowned adjudicators.

As an affiliate regional festival with Music for All, we support their mission by being, "part of [their] ongoing support of the essential core of every music program: the concert idiom. Music for All will provide one Music for All National Festival evaluator to participate, as well as a student and teacher scholarship for each Festival to award to the Music for All Summer Symposium."

We are grateful for the support of Music for All and look forward to the performance from each ensemble.

This will be a non-rated festival.
