Prairie Winds Festival
February 5 - 7, 2016
We are now accepting registrations for the 2016 Prairie Winds Festival. Register by December 15th for guaranteed acceptance. Late registrations will continue to be reviewed. Register here.
The 13th annual Prairie Winds Festival will take place at the University of Kansas on the first weekend in February. The Prairie Winds Festival encourages the musical growth of high school musicians of all levels. The festival provides advanced instruction for high school wind and percussion performers in a supportive and fun environment. Each year, students from across the United States converge on the historic KU campus to take part in this unique musical opportunity. All high school musicians are invited to participate. Students who make All State in 2016 will receive a full scholarship to the festival (excluding the registration fee).
The University of Kansas faculty will work directly with students throughout the weekend. This will include master classes, clinics, chamber music coaching sessions, and wind ensemble rehearsals.
