MICCA Concert Festival Awards Ceremony
MICCA takes great pride in its ability to offer an educationally based, non-competitive festival experience where ensembles are judged against a performance standard by nationally acclaimed adjudicators. We believe the results of every group are to be celebrated, and we are happy to recognize the efforts of all students and their directors publicly during an awards ceremony.
The MICCA Festival Awards Ceremony offers an opportunity for advocacy and celebration. While the MICCA Festival offers a different experience than competitive or sweepstake style festivals, we believe the Awards Ceremony is a valuable part of the MICCA Experience. We strongly encourage all directors to use the Concert Festival Performance Rubric during rehearsals prior to the Festival so that your students may gain the most out of the Festival experience and take pride in their ensemble's rating.
Please note that the distribution of awards, comment sheets, and judges' scores takes place during the Awards Ceremony. Your materials will be available approximately 90 minutes after your clinic if you elect to leave the Festival site prior to the Awards Ceremony. We encourage you to use this time to attend the performances of other ensembles with your students and enhance the learning experience that MICCA is so proud to offer. Please note that MICCA, or the host school, will not ship materials to directors who do not receive them the day of the Festival.
