What happens during a Festival Class?

The performer is called forward to perform their select piece(s) of music in front of the adjudicator and audience of teachers and parents. Once their performance is complete, the adjudicator takes a few minutes to write written remarks and assign a ranking on their adjudication form. After all the performers in that class have performed, the adjudicator will provide general or individual feedback to the performers. The adjudicator may invite the performer return to the stage to attempt different techniques or experiment with changes in their performance.
