Friday - Sunday, April 5 - 7, 2024
Registration for the 2024 Festival is closed.

If you are interested in participating in the 2024 Concert Festival, please email Marie Forte directly at . We have limited time slots available on Saturday, April 6th at Belchertown but all other sites and time slots have been reserved.

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.
