Drumroll, please! It’s time for your stars to shine, because we are announcing a NEW Festival Disney Solo & Small Ensemble virtual competition in 2020!
Every year, hundreds of schools compete at Festival Disney, a competitive music festival produced by Disney Performing Arts, to achieve performance excellence and recognition. For the first time ever, student performers* now have the chance to compete in a virtual competition for groups with 9 performers or less. Categories for competition include Band, Strings, and Choral. Middle school and high school performances will be adjudicated separately.
And, the excitement continues! Each performer will receive a new and exclusive Festival Disney Solo & Ensemble medal to commemorate their participation. The highest rated entry within each Division and Classification will be recognized and presented with a Distinguished Performance medal during the awards ceremony.
Specific guidelines and an application form for this new and exciting competition have been sent to directors of all confirmed groups in 2020.
Learn more and register your student performance group for Festival Disney. Also be sure to sign up for our e-newsletter to stay up to date on all things Disney Youth Programs!
*Student performance groups must already be registered for Festival Disney to be eligible for the Festival Disney Solo & Ensemble virtual competition.
