Spring Junior and Senior Festivals

The Junior and Senior Festivals give students the opportunity to perform for a judge and be evaluated on their musical growth.  Students are praised for what they do well, and given constructive suggestions as to how they can improve.  The New Jersey Federation of Music Clubs strives to nurture a love a music as well as a growing technical mastery.


OVERVIEW OF JUNIOR FESTIVALS

“Festivals are designed for all members of the National Federation of Music Clubs.  The Festival is not a competitive event but an opportunity to perform and receive evaluation.  The rules are set by the National Federation of Music Clubs.” (NFMC Federation Festival Bulletin, ii)
