Welcome to the Festival of Music Registration Page
The 2019 Festival of Music Registration is now open. Please do NOT register the same performing group for more than one spot. We are already seeing several of these instances and will be deleting the additional time slots. If you have registered the same performance group for multiple spots please go in and delete them. Thank you.
We are excited about our 43nd Annual Festival of Music at Carowinds! The school sign up page has all the information you need to get your group registered. We are glad you are here and look forward to a great year!
Our much-anticipated Festival of Music provides band, orchestra, and choral 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 Emeritus Professor of Music/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.
David Shaffer has composed and arranged more than 350 pieces of music over the past 35 years and is currently the Director of the Miami University Marching Band.
