It’s Performance Day! Whether you are a first-year teacher, 10-year veteran or a performing student, performance day brings with it a rush of emotions for everyone. Excitement, nerves, and expectations are high.
It's a celebration more than a century old – a festival of flowers, music and sports unequaled anywhere else in the world. It's America's New Year Celebration, a greeting to the world on the first day of the year, and a salute to the community spirit and love of pageantry that have thrived in Pasadena for more than 100 years.
As music educators, we all know the value and necessity of performance and festival participation, but with so many choices, how do you know which one is the right fit for your group?
