The next opportunity for your ensemble(s) to participate in a GoPerforming special event, is March 27, 2021 for the 2021 GoPerforming National Virtual Festival Masterclass, (space is limited, and going fast, so early reservations are highly recommended) an opportunity to perform and gain valuable feedback, live, from our amazing clinicians.

How it works: you gather your ensemble in your band hall, auditorium, gym, or rehearsal hall and broadcast your performance via our online platform (much like Zoom) for our panel of clinicians. They will then provide feedback- LIVE– regarding your performance focusing upon:

  • Excellence,
  • Musicality,
  • Interpretation,
  • and so much more!

No competition – No placements- No travel – just great feedback, from an internationally esteemed panel of clinicians – to help your students’ grow musically in your safe environment.

Our esteemed panel of clinicians include:

  • Jerry Junkin -Director of Bands at the University of Texas;
  • Frank Ticheli – renowned composer and faculty member at The University of Southern California;
  • Kevin Sedatole– Director of Bands at Michigan State University;
