Prefest

March 5, 2024 // Tiger Band Hall, LSU Baton Rouge Campus

Get your band ready for assessment! Directors are invited to apply to bring their ensembles to LSU for a unique opportunity to practice and refine their concert festival music. Selected ensembles will receive written and recorded feedback from a panel of LSU faculty, a 30-minute clinic from one of LSU's band directors, and the chance to listen to other bands in our community. 

Directors interested in participating in Prefest must register their groups in advance. There is no cost for bands to attend Prefest, but timeslots are limited and given out on a first-come, first-serve basis. A typical session for a band participating in Prefest lasts around one hour and every participating group must observe another group's performance.

We hope you'll consider applying to be part of this event!  Selected ensembles will be notified by February 9, 2024.
