Music Festival

The CMU Swinney Conservatory of Music will host its annual Music Festival on February 27, 2015. We invite you to bring your students to our campus for this event. The deadline for entries will be available soon.

PLEASE NOTE: As this is a MSHSAA, (Missouri State High School Activities Association), sanctioned event you are reminded that MSHSAA By-law 101 states that “no member school of this Association may compete in any interscholastic activities with any other school, or team that is not a member of the MSHSAA.” All schools participating in this event, (high school, junior high and middle school), must be registered as a member and for the activity of music to be eligible. Sixth grade students must be identified and scheduled separately from the rest of the schedule. The only sixth grade entries accepted are instrumental solos and small ensembles.

Please note:

  • While we encourage students to memorize vocal and keyboard solos, they will not be penalized for using music
  • Brass, wind, percussion, string soloists, and vocal ensembles may use music.
  • Middle school, Junior and Senior high school soloists, and large and small ensembles may participate.
