The University of Washington Pacific Northwest Band Festival is a non-competitive event featuring middle and high school bands from throughout the Pacific Northwest. Each band performs and is briefly coached by an internationally recognized clinician. Students also have the opportunity to attend master classes given by the UW School of Music faculty and qualified upper-level students. At the end of the festival day, selected students from each of the bands will have the opportunity to play in the final concert given by the UW Wind Ensemble & Symphonic Band. Ensembles are highly encouraged to stay for the entire day to observe other groups' performances, participate in master classes, and enjoy the final concert.


For a non-refundable registration fee of $600, each participating band will receive:



* A link to a Google Drive with an audio recording of your band's Meany Hall performance

* Recorded comments from our clinicians

* Brief on stage clinician coaching

* Opportunity for selected students to sit-in with one of the UW bands

* Opportunity to hear other school bands and the University of Washington Wind Ensemble/Symphonic Band


All events are free and open to the public. We welcome you and your students to come and observe. We look forward to seeing you at the festival!


Registration fees are non-refundable.
