Here is a link to the Full Public Schedule. There are NO AWARDS CEREMONIES this year.

Every director will receive your adjudicator comments and scores via google drive folder. These folders will be set-up in advance. You may get an email notification that a folder has been shared with you. The folder is intentionally empty until the festival weekend. If you do not have a shared folder by the end of the festival weekend, please email your site host directly.

You will also receive an email from your site host with specific host information closer to the festival weekend. We encourage you to support the concession stands of the host schools!! They work very hard to provide a great educational experience for all our students and your support is greatly appreciated!

And the final reminder is that Friday, February 17th is the final deadline to cancel your ensemble's participation if you have a transportation hardship. After Feb 17th, we cannot offer refunds for transportation issues and the regular MICCA cancellation/weather policy is in effect.

It is the purpose of the Massachusetts Instrumental & Choral Conductor's Association to encourage and support high performance standards by high school, middle school, and elementary school musical organizations. The MICCA Concert Festival encourages the improvement of an ensemble's musical standards by providing musical adjudication by highly qualified adjudicators. Attendance at a festival also affords organizations an opportunity to hear performances by other groups and experience the presentation of a wide variety of musical literature.

The public is welcome at all sites to hear the performances. There is a $10.00 admission charge for adults. Seniors and Students are admitted for $5.00. The one-time admission is valid at all choral and instrumental sites throughout the weekend. There are refreshments for sale at all sites as well.

Please note, each ensemble can have 4 free admissions into the festival for chaperones and each bus driver is also given free admission.

Each group will be allotted a 30-minute time slot to perform three selections. Please see the Performance Requirements/Policies page for specific information.

Each group will receive a 25-minute clinic from one of the adjudicators, as well as score sheets from each of the adjudicators, recorded adjudicators' comments and a performance recording.

Please note: Certain time slots (shown in grey when you choose a time) are designated as “string-sensitive,” where string ensembles will have the opportunity to work with a string specialist adjudicator for their clinic.

This year's MICCA Concert Festival will be held at:
Typical adjudicator set-up is 1 string specialist at each location unless otherwise noted

Belchertown High School, Friday and Saturday
Bellingham High School, Friday and Saturday (Saturday no string adjudicator)
Danvers High School, Friday, Saturday and Sunday (Friday will have 2 string adjudicators)
Foxboro High School, Friday and Saturday (Saturday will have 2 string adjudicators)
