Great East Music Festivals is the premier educational music festival series in New England. Great East Music Festivals are incredible music events established by music educators for music educators. The Great East Music Festival experience provides a formative evaluation for your performance as well as a comprehensive clinic which will support your program’s educational goals and objectives. Our standards for this musical and educational experience are of the highest caliber. You can be assured that all of our festivals will satisfy the needs of any vocal or instrumental program.


Great East Music Festivals offers an opportunity for performance in an educational atmosphere. Our events are non-competitive elementary, middle, and high school music festivals and are geared to musical organizations of all sizes, grades and ability levels. Performances can be scheduled for:

  • Concert Band
  • Wind Ensemble
  • Orchestra
  • Jazz Band
  • Concert Choir
  • Select Choir
  • Show Choir
  • Small Ensembles (vocal or instrumental)

Groups of 25 or more will receive a 30 minute instrumental performance/clinic session. Clinics for Jazz Band will last 25 minutes (2 songs) and Vocal, 25 minutes. Smaller groups are allotted less stage time. Performance times allow for set up, performance and clinic. Groups are encouraged to listen to other performances and share experiences with students from different schools.

Our festivals offer an ideal setting for your students to be evaluated. On top of the incredible performance opportunity, your students will participate in a clinic with esteemed adjudicators and educators in the music community. Whatever your group’s level of proficiency, your program will be enhanced by this amazing musical experience.
