Solo and Small Ensemble Festival 

Solo & Ensemble is a music festival that takes place in each year in Nevada both in the northern and southern regions. Students are given the opportunity to perform pieces of literature that require playing alone or in smaller groups (chamber music/ensembles). This provides students with a unique opportunity to learning new literature and perform it in a different setting. Students will be given one-on-one feedback from an adjudicator, along with a rating. Students with an excellent or superior rating will receive a metal. 

In person Solo and Small Ensemble Festival will once again take place in the Southern and Northern Zones. Scroll below to learn more about this Festival in your area.
