For the tenth year in a row, the FIU Annual Festival of Bands is back!

Each year, up to 12 area bands are chosen to perform their MPA musical program in an onstage clinic within the acoustically superior Wertheim Performing Arts Center Concert Hall, where they receive written and recorded feedback by the FIU Director of Bands Barry Bernhardt,  FIU faculty and guest clinicians. We are pleased to welcome Director of Bands at University Alabama, Dr. David Ragsdale. The evening will culminate in a finale concert, under the direction of Dr. Brenton Alston, with the FIU Wind Ensemble, FIU Flute Choir and the Miami Springs High School Wind Ensemble.
