SSU Wind Invitational
Time & Location
About the Event
After a two-year absence, I am pleased to announce the return of the Sonoma Invitational Wind Band and Orchestra Festival at the Green Music Center at Sonoma State University, March 9-11, 2022.
The Sonoma Invitational Wind Band and Orchestra Festival is an affiliate regional music festival for the Music for All Festival sponsored by Yamaha. The SIWBO is a non-competitive, non-rated festival, with emphases on musical artistry and education. The Sonoma Invitational offers you and your students the opportunity to perform in Weill Hall, one of the nation’s premier concert venues. Ensembles receive a clinic with a nationally recognized collegiate level band or orchestra clinician. Each group receives audio comments and feedback of your performance from the adjudicators and a clean video recording of your group’s performance. In addition, each conductor receives a video recording featuring a frontal view of the conductor with recorded comments from one of the adjudicators.
Our adjudication panel features topnotch collegiate band and orchestra educators from around the country. We are currently working to secure our adjudication panel, and will post information on the festival website as soon as we have confirmation.
