Our much-anticipated Festival of Music provides band, orchestra, choral and show choir students a performance experience unlike any other! Directors and their ensembles have a special opportunity to perform and play in our unique on-site venues at Carowinds. Under the guidance of Winthrop University Director of Bands, Dr. William F. Malambri, nationally known adjudicators will evaluate and critique your ensemble's performance. All groups will receive a Certificate of Participation and plaques will be awarded for Superior and Excellent ratings.
Samuel R. Hazo, recipient of the National Band Association's 2001 Biennial Composition Award, has received commissions at the professional, university and public school levels in addition to composing original scores for television, radio and the stage.
