2020 Timeline for Payments

Festival Timeline for Payments and Forms - Click HERE for printable version

As you can imagine, running this festival is a lot of work. Timely payment of fees and submission of ticket counts is crucial. Please make sure you have these dates in your calendar, and plan ahead to collect this information from your students. We expect high demand for school participation and for tickets to the evening concert featuring The DIVA Jazz Orchestra. Directors who miss deadlines will jeopardize their students' participation.  

You will receive an emailed invoice for participation fees, and a separate emailed invoice for evening concert tickets. Please submit these to your business office or booster group immediately to insure timely payment.

Please complete the Evening Concert Ticket Order Form Please do not guess or estimate! This is extremely important, as tickets for the evening concert will go on sale to the public soon after this date, and this concert will likely sell out fast! Each band will receive one or two director's comp tickets. Performing students, along with a reasonable number of chaperones, will receive "participant" ($20) tickets. All other students and adults can purchase full price ($35) tickets. Ticket Payment is not due until Monday, December 16, 2019.
