Concerto and Ensemble Festival

Second Annual MTAC Santa Clara Branch

Concerto/ Ensemble Music Festival 


The mission of the MTAC Santa Clara Branch Concerto/ Ensemble Music Festival is to provide a formal stage with competition atmosphere to gifted young musicians who are participating in the State Concerto Competitions or VOCE Competitions, as well as to all junior ensemble performers who want to show their music talent in a team.

CM Workshop

Please join us for a workshop to discuss using the Syllabus to select appropriate repertoire for you students, and to prepare them for the technique and theory parts of their CM Evaluation

We will also discuss Panel Evaluations, and how to enroll your students and prepare them for the Panel evaluations.

Please bring any questions you have about repertoire so that you don’t have to ask your CM Chairperson at the last minute.
