2022 GP PARK CONCERT FESTS

The GP Park Concert Fests are unique in that directors will choose their own concert programs – there isn’t a set repertoire list. There will not be any rankings or ratings so ensembles can explore and choose repertoire, not for a set rating, but toward exploration, interpretation, and musical excellence. After each performance ensembles will receive a brief clinic with one of our exceptional clinicians, then you’re off to the park with unlimited rides for the rest of the day.
All our Festivals are designed with SEL initiatives as well as Covid-19 protocols.
