Important Message concerning Festivals 2021
With so many uncertainties, the WFMC is pleased to announce the 2021 Festivals will be held in March.
The WFMC is partnering with HeartOut, a virtual platform that will allow students to seamlessly submit videos and music for adjudication.
The state of Wisconsin is in this virtual format together – literally – as Festivals will be conducted across the state from March 5 to March 14, 2021, and adjudication running from March 15 to March 21, 2021.
You must be a dues paying member of a Junior Club in order to enter Festivals. Dues were necessary by October 15 (otherwise there is a late fee of $50) to Jon Radmer, WFMC Membership Chair. The dues remain $2 per student with an event fee of $18 per event. (If you are an individual member the dues are $50.)
More information will be forth coming, your teacher or district chairs will keep you up to date on the 2021 WFMC Festivals. Forms for the virtual Festivals in the WFMC were due 1/1/2021.
Thank you for your patience as we look forward to a successful Festival year together.
Kathy Baumgart, Robyn Doege-Brennan, Sam Ecoff, and Jeanne Hryniewicki, virtual Festival Event Committee
