The Athens Oconee Federation Festival will be held on April 29, 2023 (location TBD). This will be a hybrid festival that offers students the opportunity to perform in person or by submitted video links.
The registration deadline is April 15, 2023. If you are submitting videos, they are due by April 25.
Students enter two pieces. One selection is from a graded list that is published by the National Federation of Music Clubs. This list highlights American composer. The second piece is a choice composition that must match guidelines also outlined in the NFMC festival bulletin. To enter, the teacher must be a member of NFMC and GFMC.
For more information, here's a link for a Federated Festival Video Q&A:
The NFMC Festivals Program is designed to give Junior (age 18 and younger) and Adult member musicians of all abilities the opportunity to perform and receive a yearly evaluation in a non-competitive environment. Participation in NFMC Festivals promotes music study, stimulates interest in the musical literature of both the USA and the world, and encourages each participant to reach a high standard of musical achievement. The NFMC Festivals Cup Award Plan and Honor Certificates offer additional incentives to encourage continued participation in NFMC Festivals.
