Festival Highlights Concert - Friday, May 15, 2015
This is a chance to hear and see some of the best instrumental, vocal and dance performances from Musicfest Northwest's weeklong festival. Adjudicators from  nine Musicfest divisions choose their favorite performers to be highlighted in this special concert. Free admission.

The Festival, organized in 1945 to instill in young people an enjoyment and appreciation of all the arts, while encouraging the study of music and dance, and promoting high standards of performance, is operated as a civic non-profit organization.

Our Mission Statement is: “To encourage, develop and improve the performance of young musicians and dancers through professional adjudication.” Entrants in the Festival receive an individual written and oral evaluation of their performance by qualified teachers and concert artists. This bulletin lists the divisions and classes available in our 70th Festival, May 10 through May 15, 2015.

The Board of Trustees of Musicfest Northwest expresses its appreciation to Verne Windham and KPBX 91.1 FM for many years of continued support to the festival: Master of Ceremonies for our evening concerts, Live studio performances of Musicfest Northwest participants, Recording and broadcasting evening concerts and generous on-air promotion.
