Directors, Parents and Students:

MUSIC IN THE PARK is gearing up for our 7th annual MUSIC FESTIVAL, Sunday, April 23rd, which will be held in the historic West End Community.  We want to share with you valuable information on how to participate.  Music In The Park is offering performance opportunities for outstanding middle school and high school bands/orchestras to star as youth acts and in our Finale Orchestra with Maestro Miguel Atwood-Ferguson from Los Angeles, California.

Music In The Park is proud to center our purpose and beliefs on the idea that music is an important component towards the development of well-rounded youth.  The purpose of the MITP MUSIC FESTIVAL is to create a musical experience that is unlike the traditional classroom setting.

On, April 23, 2017 local middle/high school bands and orchestras are invited to perform for crowds of 1500 or more.  We also want you to stay and be a part of the “grand finale act”.  Your full band/orchestra will have the opportunity to sit side-by-side with world-class musicians and perform music that will be fun, challenging and engaging with our MITP ORCHESTRA.  Directors, we invite you and your students to help make this event the biggest event of spring 2017!
