Master Clinician Video Review for Your Band Immediately After Your Show! 

New Master Clinician / Critique

Format Update

We hope you will join us this year as we host our 24th Annual Tarpon Springs Outdoor Music Festival, Saturday, October 19th.  Each performance ensemble will receive a Critique for Instructional Staff members which we believe you will find extremely beneficial to your program, both from a design element and performance analysis. There will be three clinicians, in addition to our adjudication panel, who are there specifically to view, analyze, and provide suggestions for improvement for your program.  After the performance, you and members of your instructional/design team, will have the opportunity in a closed environment to view the video of your production. At this time, you will have a designated clinician  who will answer your questions and provide you with suggestions regarding specific areas of design and performance.
Our format for the show remains consistent with previous years, with the addition of the Critique.  Once again, all band officers, drum majors, and members of the senior class are invited onto the field for the Awards Retreat.  Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions.  We hope that you will be part of our 24th Annual event!
