*The following information applies to in person Festivals. Information regarding Virtual Festival opportunities will be posted as it becomes available.
Please reference the following documents for rules for each event:
- WSMA Festival Rules which contain general festival rules that apply to all events and
- Event Headers, found in the WSMA Festival Music List under each event, contain rules specific to that event.
Be sure to review both before selecting music for your students, ensembles and concert groups.

WSMA Festivals Committee members meet bi-annually to review festival rules based on feedback from WSMA member teachers, and the desire to continue to improve how we are able to serve students. Discussion and suggested revisions are refined to a proposal that is recommended to the WSMA Board of Directors for approval.
The teachers that serve on this committee are a reflection of the entire state of Wisconsin, and their service provided is appreciated. It is encouraged that teachers share ideas with members of this committee or with WSMA staff to continue the continued growth of the festival experience. If you are interested in serving a three-year term as a member of the Festival Committee, please contact WSMA or visit www.wsmamusic.org/committees/ to apply online.
