2019 Chinook Celebration of Music Festival

Each year at CSM, we are pleased to provide a unique learning and performance opportunity for students. In our Chinook Celebration of Music Festival, students perform a musical selection for a professional adjudicator and receive both written and spoken feedback on their performances. 

This high quality, non-competitive, festival is for students in all instruments and of all skill levels. Students are scheduled into classes based on age and skill level. Classes are also available for adult students. All genres of music are welcome.
